While we were out of it, we should have just posted this single link which should have kept everyone busy for a whole day: Part Six of Jay Allen Sanford ‘s lavishly illustrated history of comics in San Diego. In this episode:
1 – The Birth of Image Comics
2 – Pacific Comics: The inside story of a legendary local comic book company (including a history of indie comics and the Creator’s Rights revolution)
3 – RIP Dave Stevens, famous former neighbor who created the Rocketeer
4 – Don’t Fear the Funnies: A history of censorship in comics
5 – The New Kids On The Block VS Revolutionary Comics – illustrated by Superman/Supergirl artist Stuart Immonen
Sanford was the publisher of Rock and Roll comics back in the day, and he has a pretty ground-level view, even if some would dispute parts of it. Well worth a thorough read.
