Romanticism in Comics

Comics studies scholars engaging comparative mythology tend to limit critical approaches to superhero fiction and classical and religious texts. Even the popular argument that superheroes are a “modern mythology” typically does not venture outside these limitations. Tolkien’s legendarium, Lovecraft’s mythos, Tennyson’s revisions to Arthurian myth, and Blake’s mythology don’t quite fit the creative models that prevailing criticism considers in comparative studies.


The Buffalo Sports Curse

No Buffalo sports team has ever won a universally recognized championship in a major league. Fans may be familiar with three events that went against Buffalo: “Wide Right,” “No Goal,” and “Home Run Throwback.” But they serve only as highlights for a century-long, deeply engrained “Sports Curse” affecting every professional team in Buffalo sports history. The significance and expansiveness of The Buffalo Sports Curse is showcased by thirty-two historical Buffalo sports events: the close calls, blown calls, injuries, deaths, nefarious back-office dealings, maladies and weird happenings at just the wrong times that all kept the “Curse” alive.​

Casting and Mending

Henry David Thoreau wrote, “Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.” That notion, that fishing is about more than catching fish—that it offers tranquility, reflection, and recovery—is at the heart of scores of programs across the United States that use fly fishing to promote physical and emotional healing.


Elverhoj
Elverhoj

Elverhoj (Danish for “hill of the fairies,” pronounced “El-ver-hoy”) was an Arts and Crafts colony established on the picturesque west shore of the Hudson River in 1912 by Danish American artists and craftsmen led by Anders Andersen. Little known today, the colony achieved a national reputation before World War I and earned a gold medal at the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. That same year a write-up in Gustav Stickley’s Craftsman magazine with photos of the rustic studios added to the colony’s growing fame.

A Symbiotic Partnership
A Symbiotic Partnership

The 1903 Syracuse, New York, Arts and Crafts Exhibition is a signature event in the Movement’s history. But were it not for what else happened, the exhibition could be dismissed for what it was: Gustav Stickley’s self-serving, shameless shilling for his hometown United Crafts furniture enterprise. Following a twelve-day run in Stickley’s salesrooms, the exhibition moved ninety miles west to Mechanics Institute in Rochester. Stickley’s traveling exhibit predates by a decade what is usually acknowledged as the first art exhibition held at multiple venues, the New York Armory Show.
