Comics and Verbal/Visual Studies Discussion Lists

Besides our comix scholars list-serve, there are dozens of comics-related discussion lists, covering everything from individual cartoonists, books, or characters to wide-ranging topics like alternative comics, European comics, and more. Here are some links to a few, select lists. If a list has an official page, there will be a link to it; if not, subscription information will appear. Suggestions and corrections are encouraged.
