The Medieval Comics Project, sponsored by The Association for the Advancement of Scholarship and Teaching of the Medieval in Popular Culture, is an ongoing effort conducted by a small (but dedicated) group of comics scholars, Arthurian enthusiasts, and medievalists to compile a comprehensive listing of the representations of the medieval in the comics medium. The corpus is international in scope and extends as far back as (at least) the 1920s. We welcome your help in achieving our goal.
