Panel Pulp

Comics don’t offer much in terms of fortune and glory, but comics will give you complete freedom to tell the stories you want to tell, in ways unlike any other medium. Comics will pick you up after it knocks you down. Comics will dust you off and tell you it loves you. And you will look into it’s eyes and know it’s true, that you love comics back.

I also have gotten a kick out of Panel Pulp, who shares vintage comic panels. Here are some of their finds:

Besides enjoying the art (even as a little boy, I loved the drawings!), I find the immediacy of comics one of their most important characteristics. The cartoonist just doesn't have time (or space) to be long-winded...such is the charm of a comic panel. :-)
