Interplanetary Journal of Comic Art (Festschrift for John Lent)

Posted on behalf of Michael Rhode. For just a hint of how enormously important Dr. Lent has been for research on comics around the world, click here. I'll get my entry to you soon, Mike!
John Lent's 70th birthday - A Modest Proposal

John Lent, founder of the International Journal of Comic Art, and friend to many of us, turned 70 on September 8th.

Gene Kannenberg, Charles Hatfield and I were discussing doing a fun gift for him - a parody of his journal to be called the Interplanetary Journal of Comic Art. I set up a Yahoo Group for those who'd like to participate. Come to and sign up or email me at There's a dummy in the files at the IPJOCA group if you'd like to see what other people are doing.

We'll find an opportunity to present it to John, perhaps in April at the Popular Culture Association conference.

Pass this around if you think someone will be interested, but not to John.

For once it is fortunate that John does not use the internet...
