The Graphic Policy office is still standing after the 5.8 earthquake yesterday (we’re just outside of DC in Virginia) and I wish I could say the piles of comics, graphic novels and movies thrown about due to it.  That’s not the case, and is really just post convention chaos.  While I attempt to get things in order, here’s the news you might have missed.

Von Allan Studio – Minimum Wage and the Prices of Comics – A very good article about the comic book market and a look at wages over the years compared to the price of comics.

 

The Huffington Post – Comic Books go to war- A Very Brief History of the War ComicAlways great to see articles about comic book history.
