WHITHER THE COMICS CODE? So DCandArchie, the last bastions of the Comics Code Authority, have dropped the seal’s use entirely. Which begs the question, hopefully for an actual comics journalist to answer: Who was the Comics Code Authority? Where was this self-governing body headquartered, who was on it, and what will they do now? As something that’s existed for something like 60 years, you’d think we’d know more about it. Sure, we know what created it, but how has it been maintained these many years? What caused its complete loss of power (the direct market, I presume)? How will it be remembered?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: So if Disney and Marvel produce a crossover between their respective “universes,” what match-up are you most itching to see? Me, I’m partial to “Beauty & the Beast and the Beast,” myself.
Seven more days have passed us by, and it’s time for another foray into the series of tubes that is the comics internet! If you’re itching for dumb puns and wordplay with lots of links to cool stuff, look no further!
