The Medieval Comics Project--now online
- Dear list members,
In preparation for two conference panels/sessions in the Spring of 2004, I
have begun an online database devoted to comics (comic strips, comic books,
panel cartoons, and graphic novels) with medieval themes or based on
medieval texts, events and legends. After some technical problems, I am
pleased to announce that the complete site is finally active at
<http:KingArthurForever.home.att.net/mcphome.htm>. At present, the listing
is in three parts: an introduction to the project, a listing of comics, and
a bibliographic guide to studies on medieval comics. I welcome any
suggestions for future updates to any of these pages.

I just wanted to let you know that # 4 in "Le chant d'Excalibur" comic
series by Arleston & Hübsch and # 4 in the "Merlin" comic series by
Istin, Lambert & Stambecco have been released recently. They are
available from amazon.fr along with the series : "Arthur, une épopée
celtique" by Chauvel, Lereculey & Simon (5 vols) ; "Arthur Pendragon" by
Istin, Michel & Chani (only 1 volume up to this day) and the first three
volumes of the complete "Chevalier Ardent" by François Craenhals. You
might also like to read "La Graine de Folie" by Civiello and Mosdi that
takes place in Brocéliande (4 vols.). Of course all these are in French.
