Jamie Coville's in-progress ode to the history of 20th century comic books. Start with his Newsstand Period Part 1 (1922-1955), a rich history of the artists and entrepreneurs behind early comics, laced with high quality cover scans. Then check out Coville's History of Superhero Comic Books, which runs through the various comic book 'ages' (Silver, Golden, etc.) and includes names like The Phantom, Captain America, Flash, and The Fantastic Four. There's more on this site as well... including downloadable images and historical transcripts.
