On the Trail of Digital Comics Collections

brother voodooNow that the examination of comics and graphic novels is becoming established as a field of study by the American Academy of Religion, it behooves researchers to be able to track down the best library archives and collections for doing this work. I am glad that the definition of viable texts for academic analysis and interpretation has extended to these valuable materials.

Today I saw an awesome archive with multiple historical collections of comics at the University of Florida. Can’t wait to dig in there for Africana religions sources. Any other collections that people out there want to let me know about, I am compiling a resource list for other scholars and researchers who are interested in Africana representations in Religion studies with comics, manga and graphic novels.
