I LOVE this idea. What a great thing to expose people to some of the great artists and writers of the past. It’s really a no-brainer…start getting those old archives out there!

And the web is the perfect place to be doing so. It doesn’t take space away from fresh content, and it’s available to anyone who wants to read it.

Hmm … “Vintage Webcomics”?

“Vintage Webcomics”

This gem goes all the way back to the late 1960s:

@Mike Donahue: I honestly meant the term “Vintage Webcomics” as a term applied to vintage comics that are reprinted on the web.

@Frank: Quit trying to get me in trouble!!!! :)

If you want a great “mashup” of vintage influence and modern nihilism, check out Ricky Garduno’s webcomic, “1930 Nightmare Theatre.” Sadly, it ended it’s run just today, but it’s a great run, imho…

Still hoping that one day they will also include some of the old King western strips.
