IJOCA 11-3 sample

IJOCA's special 3rd issue this year will be a bibliography of combined work by John Lent and Mike Rhode, using the arrangement schema that John developed over 10 volumes of Comic Art Bibliography, and his citations, combined with the citations I've been compiling for my Comics Research Bibliography. Here's a sample from the US - Comic Book section. We won't be remotely complete, and I'll be adding new citations as soon as I turn the mss over to John. If this is popular, we'll do an issue a year; if not, I'll go to Print-on-Demand.
