"The Comic Arts Collection at San Diego State includes circulating comics and scholarship about the comic arts, and a large collection of non-circulating floppy comics and graphic novels in Special Collections and University Archives. The collection emphasizes alternative and independent titles, underground comix, drawn books and Modern Age comics, as well as materials that document the history of comic book culture, fandom and the creative process behind comic book production. Noteworthy holdings include a large collection of ephemera and memorabilia from fan conventions, full runs of RAW Magazine and Milestone Comics, feminist literature, self-published and mini-comics, French language comics, several popular manga series, and vintage comics and comic strips, including Disney Comics."

Specific to SDSU

Note that some of these queries, especially those related to SDSU, are rather sparse, we are working on spreadsheets to batch load information for works and awards.

Most common properties[edit]

Lists of the most common properties, can be used for application profiles or for ideas of statements that can be included.



queries for people based on occupation


Note that per WikiProject Narration, the preferred method for modeling superheroes/supervillains is to use character type. However, many still list superhero/supervillain as an occupation, so I ran queries for the most common properties for both ways.
