Hello, Comics Royals,
It’s been quite a week here in The Kingdom. The BIG news is, the fans have spoken, the cuts have been made and we have The Royal Eight for the next exciting round in our bracket-style competition, Vintage Madness!
Over the next three weeks, these comics will go head to head, panel to panel in an epic battle to be the last vintage comic standing! The comic with the most votes will be added to Vintage Comics line-up. The Vintage Comics section is accessible to Royal members only, but any user can access the Vintage archives for free with a seven-day trial subscription. If you are interested in taking part in Vintage Madness, take a look at the first matchups of our eight vintage comic contenders and vote for your top 4 favorites here.
Remember to follow the “Ask the Archivist” blog every Thursday for the latest Vintage Madness action, updates and standings.
