Farewell, Modern Tales

I’m beginning to realize just how much of what made me the comic fan I am today is no longer familiar — or even recognized — by younger readers and creators. I know, it’s boring to hear someone complain about being old, but Shaenon Garrity’s amazing piece on the history of Modern Tales and others of Joey Manley’s for-pay webcomic collectives took me back to another time, when comic creators were excited about the future and all the options it would bring and all kinds of experiments took place. Founded in 2001, the site went through a lot of changes before finally petering out last year. Garrity’s memories are a terrific time capsule and a great read about another era now passed.
