Ever stumble across a comics treasure trove when you least expected it?
The other day I was looking around for the websites of artists associated with the late, lamented Buenaventura Press when I clicked a random link USSCatastrophe, the site of cartoonist Kevin Huizenga. Suddenly I found myself looking at a hidden repository of out-of-print comics by an astonishing range of cartoonists from throughout the history of the medium. An entire book of dog cartoons by Barnaby artist Crockett Johnson ... early minicomics by two of my favorite altcomix artists, Dave Kiersh and John Hankiewicz ... crazy-gorgeous strips and cartoons by C.C. Beck, Abner Dean, and Garret Price ... links to, samples from, and miniature reviews of dozens more titles ... sure, some of the links are broken -- it's been years since the stuff was updated, it seems -- but what's there is more than enough to keep me blissed out on hidden gems for hours on end.
Have you ever wandered into a similar motherlode of comics goodness online? Superheroes or scanned minicomics, a killer collection of original art or a webcomic you never knew existed, a site full of classic strips or a gallery of stunning covers -- whatever it is, post your links in the comments. Face it, tiger -- you've just helped thousands of readers kill an afternoon!
