Medieval Comics News Updates

Two quick updates today, both related to blog posts.

Michael A. Johnson of UT Austin asks "Are Comics Medieval?" at the Pencil Panal Page blog and gives a heads up to the work of the Medieval Comics Project. includes the query "The first ever comic book?" over at Medieval News in reference to a tumblr posting by Damien Kempf highlighting "A medieval comic book", further evidence of sequential art in medieval manuscript illumination.
