Comics Grid crowdsources comics news and feature sites “Master List”

The Comics Grid, the Journal of Comics Scholarship is crowdsourcing a directory of feeds from blogs or sites that cover comics,  particularly comics criticism, history and scholarship.

“We are keen on following blogs that review, discuss and/or link to articles about comics,” says Dr Ernesto Priego, the University of London-based Editor-in-Chief of The Comics Grid.

“Blogs or sites do not have to be only about comics to be added to the directory,” he explains, “and you do not have to be the owner or publisher of the resource to add it here. If the blog or site has covered or is likely to discuss comics scholarship or criticism at some point in the future we’d also like to know of it.

“Though we come from a comics scholarship perspective blogs or sites don’t have to be necessarily by academics or for academics. If the blog covers comics criticism and news we want to subscribe to its feed.”
