Calvin and Hobbes debuted on 18 November 1985. What newspapers did it appear in on that day?

My last superheroes comic I bought for less than a buck ages ago. I kid you not. So I broke down and purchased the condensed version of "Civil War" from Amazon. And ever since, my head's been a maze of confusion.

We found this comic book
(or whatever it is) in the house among the previous owners' things. It was in a box of papers from the 1930's and 1940's but I can't guarantee that it is as old as that. I scanned the cover and a few pages, but cannot read Japanese. It's as thick as a copy of Wired Magazine (many pages). Any ideas?

LOLcats teach us that cats can write, they just don't have very good spelling or grammar. The same idea has been used in advertising ("Eat Mor Chikin") and of course Far Side cartoons. Was Gary Larson the father of this concept, or were there other places where it was pervasive before he came along? [more inside]

In Nashville TN there is a great place called The Great Escape which used to, and may still, sell crappy old comic books for 15 to 25 cents apiece. Is there such a place in the NYC area?

What is the word for phrases such as "meanwhile", or "in an entirely different place altogether"? The sort of words you would see in the narrative box of a comic strip that contextualises the action. Do you have any rather verbose examples?

I get to take an inventory of my work's comic library. Fun, yes - but also... Yikes. There has to be a better way to track our comics than this clunky excel spreadsheet. And I'm no wiz at filemaker. Is there a free/cheap software that can help? [more inside]

Sandman Fans: I need a quotation, but I don't have the graphic novel. It's from the first volume. He's leaving Hell after retrieving one of his toys, and Morpheus says something about how the worst thing you can do to the condemned in Hell is give them hope. What's the actual quote?

I have just run across several good comic book series, in particular Chadwick's Concrete
, Azzarello's 100 Bullets
and the Sin City graphic novels. Its an area that I am unfamiliar with, and there does seem to be a lot of literate writing out there. I would love to find a site that could help me separate the wheat from the chaff and that would keep me posted of new good material. Any suggestions?

I'm trying to remember what the name of an comic strip available online I saw several years ago. It was set in college and the main character was male and outlandish, always doing crazy things, etc. Towards end of the run, he doesn't like the "script" so he decides to make big changes before the comic ends, including leaving his wife and child. Any ideas? [more inside]

Comic Strip Filter: The strip featured someone being visited by a genie and offered three wishes. He wishes for a hamster wheel. In the last frame he is running in his wheel and the genie asks what he would like for his other two wishes and the guy says, "Who needs more wishes?"
Did anyone see it? Can anyone point me where to find it? I would be most grateful.

I'm looking for sites related to American popular culture from the early 20th century
: books, films, radio, magazines, music, dance, comic strips, celebrities — you name it. I'm particularly interested on the period between the wars, but open to great stuff from before (and during) World War I, as well. Little Nemo, Keystone Kops, the Lindy Hop, Enrico Caruso, Fatty Arbuckle, Al Jolson, Clara Bow, Flash Gordon, Alice blue, Teddy bears, etc. These are all the sorts of things I'm after, especially as they're represented on the web. Bonus points for sites with RSS feeds. [more inside]

Any X-Men experts hereabouts? What would you recommend as a starting point for someone who enjoyed the movies and the animated series from the early 90s and now would like to go back and actually read the original comic books? Are there any omnibus-type volumes that would help bring a new reader up to speed?
