Blog on economics and comic books

by on May 26, 2009 at 7:15 pm in Weblogs | Permalink

Today I received this email:

I am a student of
economics in New York, an avid comic
book reader since childhood, and a big fan of Marginal Revolution.  I
just wanted to draw your attention to a blog that a friend and I have
created.  It's called Ecocomics
and deals with economics in comic books.  It's meant to be a fun read
and currently includes posts on topics such as how Two-Face
funds his crime sprees, the lucrative construction industry in comic
books, Jonah Hex and 19th century real estate, millionaires in
comic books, and Superman and labor unions.  I think you might really
enjoy it!

The problem is that “Ecocomics” sounds like it features the adventures of Captain Planet. Is it too late to go for “Comicnomics”?

Thank you for referring me to what is possibly the best blog ever created ever.

Good blog, nicely written! Really a new way of approaching economics!

i think you need to add an “o” to “comicnomics” (comiconomics for the win).
