Here are a couple of items about comics that have been around for a while, but that I just discovered:

A well-written and well-argued post on the trouble with long-running superhero comics.

This thread on the history of the direct market, with lots of meaty contributions by people who were there in the early days. Note that the thread actually starts in 1999; I didn't realize this at first, resulting in a slight case of vertigo. Also, the third page of the thread gets bogged down in an irrelevant argument, but the thread recovers in the fourth and last page, so don't give up.

I've also added Acephalous, a very intelligent and enjoyable blog on literature and academia, to my sidebar.
