Greetings Comics Royals!
Since we had fun doing our first bracket-style competition, Vintage Madness, we decided to bring it back! Over the next four weeks, eight 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, view the full list of vintage comic contenders and vote for your top 8 favorites here.
Remember to follow the “Ask the Archivist” blog every Thursday for the latest Vintage Madness action, updates and standings.
