The Arthurian Comics Discussion List
Sponsored by The Alliance for the Promotion of Research on the Matter of Britain, the Arthurian Comics Discussion List was founded by Michael A. Torregrossa in July 2000 to promote intellectual discussion and debate on and to further interest in one of the least researched media of post-medieval Arthuriana in popular culture: Arthurian-themed comics, a form of Arthuriana in existence since at least the 1920s. The corpus, which includes thousands of examples, encompasses all forms of the comics medium, including panel cartoons, comic books, comic strips, graphic albums and novels, manga, and webcomics.
The Arthurian Popular Culture Discussion List
The Arthurian Popular Culture Discussion List was founded in October 2000 to promote informed discussion and debate about manifestations of the Arthurian legend in popular culture from the Middle Ages to the present day. The list is sibling to the Arthurian Comic Book Discussion List, but the Popular Culture List has a wider scope and will accept posts on all aspects of the Arthurian legend in popular culture (including film, television, role-playing games, fiction, toys and, of course, comic books).
