"Camelot in Comics"
- Michael, Alan, and everyone
I am writing an article for inclusion in a book entitled "King Arthur in
Popular Culture," to be published by McFarland, and I wanted to first
off say how much in debt I am going to be to excellent resources like
"Camelot 3000 and Beyond" and "Camelot in Four Colors."
There's no way that a 15 page essay can compare with the authoritative
work you folks have done and all I can do is try to contribute to the
discussion. But it is my intention to include a list of sources that
will include websites, articles, and anything else that the audience may
find useful as further reading.
Michael, I remember you discussing updates to your article, and I
wondered if those were accessible online?
As I worked, it occured to me that this year was kind of a downer for
Arthurian comics, at least in the US. With "Legends of Camelot,"
"Knewts" and "Lady P" all missing in action, and "Aquaman" downright
cancelled. On the good side we have "Spaceknights," "Butcher Knight" and
a new version of "Excalibur." (I have a very high tolerance for
Arthurian Comics. It's pretty much all good to me.)
Any thoughts or comments -- I am all ears
- Sorry to be so clueless, but I'd appreciate some additional info about some
of the comics Jason referred to. What's Arthurian about Aquaman--beyond the
name Arthur? Has the series incorporated Arthurian characters, motifs,
themes or made some other connection to the traditional material? Same
question about Spaceknights.
Your contribution to the discussion, scholarship, et al, will be most
welcome! Good luck with the article, and please don't hesitate to
let me know if I can help with any specific questions or problems.
Nothing is available yet. I'm still hard at work on the next three (DC.
Marvel, and independents), but I have no idea yet when they'll be ready.
