Some Comic Book History Links for Saturday

Here are a few notable links for you comic book history fans out there.

1. Les Daniels passed away two weeks ago. Daniels was perhaps the very first serious comic book historian, and we comic book history buffs are all worse off for his passing.

Click here to read his obituary at the New York Times.

2. Mick Anglo, as well, passed away on Halloween. He was 95 years old.

Pádraig Ó Méalóid wrote up a fascinating and exhaustive look at Anglo’s life over at the Forbidden International blog. You can check it out here.

3. Finally, while every issue of Alter Ego is worth picking up, this month’s issue is even MORE worth it because I’m cited in it a couple of times. It is an amazingly extensive look at the history of the Comics Code by Richard Arndt. We’re talking over FIFTY pages of awesome information. Well worth a purchase.

You can get a copy here.


Great links Brian. Thanks. The final paragraph in the Anglo piece was a great capper to an all-around good article.

I was crushed to hear that Les Daniels passed. I never knew him personally, but his big history books on Marvel and DC were instrumental in facilitating my awareness and love of the medium. May he rest in peace :(

Thanks for the link, Brian. Glad you liked the piece.

Les Daniels’ Marvel tome was essential to the fomenting of my comics fandom, and I’m forever grateful to have it, and its DC companion, on my shelf.
