It Takes a While

God, this is harder than I thought. Well, my weekend was busy, so the blog is very short.

Today on the site we have a piece by Brian Puaca, a historian whose work you may have seen at Sequart. He is going to be exploring 'chokepoints' in comics history, comparing the formation of the Comics Code Authority in the 1950s and its economic impact on the U.S. comic book industry with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic - of course, many different factors, particularly the means of distribution for comic books, allowed or disallowed responses by the industry at large.

And, later, we are going to welcome another new contributor to the site - Sally Bryden, a musician and sports entertainment connoisseur who will be reviewing the new collection of wrestling drawings by Jaime Hernandez. You can hear Sally’s music in the short horror film Sungazer from last year.

That's it. I'm sorry I tricked you all by putting a Jack Chick image on the front page for Clark's column last Friday. I thought it was dizzying, you know? Like staring down from a high place. What can I say?

See you next week, unless I am cast into the Lake of Fire.
