Item: If you are at all interested in academic and critical discussions of comics, and read French (or have a Google translation), you might be interested in the new blog by French comics scholar Thierry Groensteen (who I always imagined looks like Wonder Girl's Mary Sue boyfriend from Teen Titans). Groensteen wrote "The System of Comics" which was translated by Bart Beaty. Bonus: Will D+Q translate Jens Hardens' Alpha...directions? (link: Dirk Deppey)
Item: Also in French, blogging for Montreal comics shop Monet, Eric Bouchard writes about the history of Korean Manwha.
