The Mullins Library
Moving makes you realize how many books you have. I’ve been reading comics since about sixth grade. I haven’t kept absolutely everything I’ve ever bought, but I have a lot of it. And most of this stuff is not in print anymore. I keep thinking that I should donate it all to a library or start one of my own. Both of those would take time and resources I don’t have right now. Yet writing my own comics reading history made me realize that I could do this digitally and post about some of these books on-line. So that’s what I want to do in the new year.
Starting today, I am going to post to #themullinslibrary every Sunday. I will do this both through Twitter and Instagram. You can follow the Instagram hashtag here.
I’m beginning with a graphic novel from 1992, The Minotaur’s Tale by Al Davison. You can read the Darkhorse description. It’s an impressive book that has a lot of intertexuality and uses different art styles to designate various emotional states. See more here or here.
