Let's All Finish Updating Comics 2017: Scene By Scene

image

In 2005 it occurred to me that this site could use a basic resource breaking down all things comics-related by metropolitan area -- kind of a first stop on who to contact if you were planning to relocate, or where to go if you were planning a visit, or who to invite if you were having a show, or who you might profile if you were writing a feature article.

This list always in progress is the result. Creative people make up the bulk but not the entirety of the people list. Comic shops make up the bulk but not the entirety of the institutions list.

It was majorly updated in January 2007, February 2008, December 2009, December 2010, January 2012 and August 2014. The last update was February 2017.

If you can be added to a community, If you know someone who can be added to a community, If you know someone who is definitely no longer part of a community but is listed as such, If you know of an institution that should be added to the list below, If you know of a community of three or more people and institutions to add, If you know of changes or additions that need to be made in existing entries,
