50 Comics Positives For 2014: New Comics Scholarship Group Organized


Add CSS to the name of abbreviated titles you need to remember and the Comic Studies Society web site to those you might wish to follow. At this year's ICAF in Columbus, Ohio, Charles Hatfield and the other interim officers of a newly-formed group announced their arrival to a packed, excited room.

As someone whose attendance at comics scholarly events was at one point marked by more than a decade of time in between, it's amazing how much that field is grown. A society to serve their interests in everything from directing graduate students to disseminating information about employment to sharing resources seems vitally necessary. It should also allow a generation of talented academics that work with comics a chance to give back.
