Obscure cities archives | Francois Schuiten & Benoit Peeters
Welcome to Altaplana, the impossible and infinite encyclopedia of the world of The Obscure Cities, originally named Les Cités Obscures and its authors François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters.

François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters started to explore these cities in the early 1980s. In this fictional world, humans live in independent city-states, each of which has developed a distinct civilization, each characterized by a distinctive architectural style.

François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters didn't only explore this universe by graphic novels, but also by the means of books, movies, exhibitions, scenographics & radio documentaries.

The word Obscure is somewhat misleading for English-speaking readers. In English we tend to think of the word to mean “little known” or “odd.” The French use the word for multiple meanings, including “mysterious”, “hidden” or even “secluded.” ALL of these adjectives could apply to the world imagined in the minds of Benoît Peeters and François Schuiten.

Home - SKTCHD
Welcome to SKTCHD, a comic book site created and owned by David Harper, formerly of the Eisner-nominated Multiversity Comics. This site is designed to approach comics and the world around them from a unique perspective, taking deeper, research-driven dives into the stories behind the comics and the people who make them.

It’s also meant to be a community of people who don’t just want to look at the stories in comics, but extending into the ones that are just as interesting taking place outside of them. More than anything, this is a place where comics and their creators are celebrated, and where we’re reminded that it takes a lot of people to make these stories we love.

Comic books are amazing, magical things. SKTCHD is here to help you not forget how and why that is the case. We hope you enjoy it.

Also, please feel free to share your thoughts via social or email me if you have any subjects you think I should look at. I always appreciate people reaching out.

Comic Art Gallery of George Hagenauer at ComicArtFans.com
I have been collecting since I won a free piece of art in the Jerry Bails data contest in the mid 1960's. For several years I wrote over 200 columns on original art for the Comic Buyers Guide and along with new material that also appeared here in the "Art You Can Read" section of the forums (click on community above and scroll down to Forums though it may be gone).

NOTE : Everything in the gallery is for sale except galleries marked KEEPERS, reference or History of Mystery or "who did it"- though on occasion those pieces do move if I find something I like more! A lot of the art in the Keepers and History of Mystery galleries have been in my collection for 15-30 years. I add additional material as time allows. Only about half of the collection is up here. I do shows and periodic emails to the 1500 people on my mailing list so if something is of interest move on it. A lot of the sale art is consignment from friends.

(8) An X-Citing Evening with X-Men Writer Chris Claremont at Princeton University on November 7th 2016 - YouTube
The author of a record-setting 17 year run on comic's most successful title in modern times has provided the fuel for a generation's imagination with over 750 million copies sold, movies, television programs, cartoons and video games based on his work.

Cosponsored by the Depart of English, the Program in Creative Writing in the Lewis Center for the Arts, and the Princeton Writing Program.

An Alternative History of Singapore, Through a Comic Book - NYTimes.com
“The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye” tells the story of Singapore’s greatest cartoonist, who grew up after the war when the colonies of British Malaya and Singapore were agitating for independence.
[...]
What slowly becomes apparent is that Charlie Chan is fictional, maybe not even that famous, and the person “presenting” his work, Sonny Liew, is the real artist.

MarvelMasterworks.com: The Marvel Masterworks Resource Home Page
As author of this page, my hopes are that it will be a one-stop resource for information about the content of the MASTERWORKS that have been published, as well as the most current news about this series and its future volumes. But though this site's namesake is the series of deluxe hardcovers we all love, it's not the only topic we have covered around here! If you're a fan of ESSENTIALS, the OVERSIZE MARVEL HARDCOVERS, the new MARVEL PREMIERE EDITION or OMNIBUS lines, or the wide assortment of TRADE PAPERBACKS that Marvel publishes on a monthly basis, I think you'll find this website and the community it fosters to be an authoritative resource for all your Marvel collected editions needs. To me, the Masterworks are the top of the pyramid of Marvel's collected editions output, but there is lots for Masterworks fans to enjoy in the other books Marvel produces.

Anything Goes: The Comicmobile
Yes, the Comicmobile, that fabled vehicle of comics history that many have heard of but few have seen (and even fewer have actually purchased anything from). For those of you who are unfamiliar with it: It was Sol’s idea that if kids living in the suburbs couldn't get to the old “mom and pop stores” that sold comics, we should bring the comics to them. So he leased a big blue van, had “The DC Comicmobile” painted on it, and plastered super-hero stickers all over it. Then he stocked it with leftover comics from the DC library and sent Michael Uslan (much later the executive producer of the Batman and Swamp Thing movies, among lots of other things) out on the streets of New Jersey to sell them.

Image Comics Breaks From the Traditional - Interactive Feature - NYTimes.com
The 1990s were an exciting time to be a comic-book fan. It was a boom time in the industry, and the heroes’ storylines, at least initially, seemed original – like the unexpected death of Superman. Skin-tight costumes finally gave way to other sartorial choices, including leather jackets, buckles and straps. And Image Comics was born, helping expand the industry beyond the dominant companies, Marvel and DC.

Image publishers past and present – Jim Valentino and Eric Stephenson – provided information about the company’s history.
