Recent Additions to the Comics Scholarship Annotated Bibliographies

Long Time, No Blog Dep't: Yes, I know; it's been about a month since I posted anything here, but that's about to change. [Insert typical New Year's Resolution here - But I swear, I'm gonna keep to it this time.] In fact, I plan to make better use of this blog as I originally intended it: As a news site not just for miscellaneous comics news, but also for updates to my Comics Scholarship Annotated Bibliographies []. To that end, here are the books I've recently added to - or edited at - the website.
