New Paul Tumey and Frank Young Blog - Comic Book Attic!

I've teamed up with my friend and fellow comic book writer, artist, and scholar Frank Young to start up a new blog. Frank and I have created in-depth blogs that study the work of one particular creator (in Frank's case, John Stanley at Stanley Stories). From time to time, we run across lost gems in comics that we'd love to share and comment upon. So, we created Comic Book Attic.

Our first post looks at a wild Nazi horror story from 1953, and compares it to a bizarrely altered version published in 1958. As Frank put it, this example shows very well how the Comics Code Authority negatively affected comics.

Comic Book Attic affords us a chance to write about—and share—other comics material, both great and effed-up, from the tattered history of the four-color medium.
We look forward to the fun we’ll have here, and we hope you’ll enjoy our musings as well.

Check it out and let us know what you think. More great stuff to come!
