You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Crazy About Comic Books

The Internet brings us another wonderful forum for comic book fans and historians alike. The Hey Kids! Comics blog (just one of several comic-related blogs of an illustrator and comic book scholar named Rob) features reminiscences by avid comic book readers about comic favorites from childhood or another point in the past, often detailing vivid memories of the first comic that ignited a lifelong passion. (You are invited to send in your own story.) Most delightfully, there are often photos of these young urchins reading a funny book epic or two, as well as other historic photos (a 1938 newsstand with rows of freshly-printed copies of Action Comics No. 1, for example) . Pictured is the heading from this must-read blog. But don’t let the round glasses fool you—that is not a photo of me.
