Michael Torregrossa's "Camelot 3000 and Beyond", fully cited in "Printed Resources", is a comprehensive annotated listing of American Arthurian comics of the 1980's and 1990's, and has been an indispensable resource for the information on this site. Michael also moderates an e-mail discussion group devoted to Arthurian comics, the Arthurian Comics Discussion List , and maintains a web site devoted to the topic, the Arthur of the Comics Project. Rodney Parrish's "Camelot Illustrated", or "King Arthur in Comics" is another comprehensive site. Web sites devoted to specific works such as "Mage" have been noted throughout this site, as have other helpful web sites. Other sites that have been helpful in my research included the Marvel Chronology Project, the Comic Book Database, the Grand Comics Database and the Appendix to the Handbook of the Marvel Universe.
For those interested in tracking down Arthurian
comics and graphic novels, the Internet offers a wealth of
possibilities. A number of English-language works are available in
print in trade paperback format from major online retailers such as
Several publishers, including Caliber
Comics and Fantagraphics
Books, sell comics on their sites.
Major online comics retailers in the U. S. include the
High Comics Internet Store, and
offers a selection of in-print French-language comics, as do the more
general sites Amazon.fr
There are many other sites devoted to selling in-print and back-issue
comics; an ordinary Google search will bring up a long list. Another
popular option is online auction sites, typified by eBay.
And of course, recent years have greatly increased the availability of
digital editions of comics, which can be purchased and downloaded from Comixology and similar sites.
(Note: Although I have successfully used a number of these services, these listings are for informational purposes only and do not represent an endorsement.)
There are also a number of more general Arthurian sites on the Web. Two excellent starting points are Arthuriana and The Camelot Project. These two scholarly resources have collaborated in the production of the Arthuriana/Camelot Project Bibliographies (of which Michael Torregrossa's is one). Both sites include other interesting content as well as links to some other Arthurian sites. Other Internet resources include the Arthurnet listserv (currently inactive, bur archived), the alt.legend.king-arthur newsgroup, and the Arthurian Popular Culture Discussion List, an e-mail group located at Yahoo! Groups. This companion e-mail group to the Arthurian Comics Discussion List is concerned with all expressions of the Arthurian legend in popular culture.
