"Comics have been called a good many things lately. Actually the American comic is an art form. It may prove to be the most significant art form developed in America."

Welcome to ComicArtsJournal.com, the site dedicated to the rich history of what has been termed "America's only contribution to the world of art", the American Newspaper Comic Strip.

We're going through quite a comic strip reprint renaissance right now. In the past couple of years we've seen the return of Dick Tracy, Buck Rogers, Wash Tubbs and Captain Easy, Terry and the Pirates, The Phantom, Rip Kirby, and more. And soon, we'll see the likes of Al Williamson's Secret Agent Corrigan, Buzz, Sawyer, and even more Walt and Skeezix!

That's why we've started this site. To celebrate the rich history of this great American art form. From the first cartoon to appear in an American newspapers, to the early beginning of the Sunday funnies. We'll also take a look at the adventure strips of the thirties and forties, as well as the rise and fall of the continuity strip.

We'll be launching pages as they become available, so be sure to check back often.

And don't forget to check out our bookstore, where we'll be offering the most comprehensive listing of books available related to the newspaper cartoon, comic strips, and their creators.
