"Nostalgia is an inappropriate emotion to feel about an armed international crisis, I know. And yet I have to admit: Being back at the brink with the Russians feels familiar and homey to me." Tim Kreider cartoon & essay for Al Jazeera America.
man, I know I’m “too young” for this but when I hear OP-ED that’s just like “this has nothing to do with the cold war. The cold war is over.” I’m just like “Really? Really now, nothing to do with the cold war?”

Of all the more recently established NYC comic fests, I’d say this is one really stepping up and changing the game (so to speak!), but enough said, hope ppl check out Black Comic Book Day Fest this weekend!
Spring is the time for new love, and like the first crocus poking through the snow, our advance copies of Young Romance 2: The Early Simon & Kirby Romance Comics, the sequel to the Eisner Award-nominated first volume, have arrived to portend the book’s March release. Joe Simon and Jack Kirby (whom everyone knows from their superpower-driven work) not only invented the romance comics genre, they mastered it right out of the gate, as shown in these compelling, dramatic, dynamically-illustrated tales from 1947-1949. And they’ve never looked better: all the sighs, swoons, kisses, heartbreak, and tears are lovingly restored in reconstructed color. Read an excerpt and pre-order your copy right here.
it would be neat to do some kind of comparative study of early American Romance comics and early Japanese Shojo manga.
