Welcome to my little attempt at grabbing a piece of Internet Immortality. SEQUENTIAL ELLISON is my attempt at compiling information on the Comic Book work either written by or adapted from the work of Harlan Ellison, as well as various comic book related Ellison-paraphernalia. A writer who working professionally for over thirty years, Ellison has long been a fan, reader, and proponent of comic books. He has written about them in his non-fiction work and fiction work alike and has on occasion written original comic book scripts. These forays into sequential art have ranged from superhero scripts starring the Hulk or Batman, to a collaboration with underground cartoonist Larry Todd. In addition to these original scripts many of his short stories and television scripts have been adapted into comic book form, in the largest bulk in his short-lived anthology book from Dark Horse Comics, Harlan Ellison’s Dream Corridor.
This bibliography is a working document. It has circled around on the Usenet and on various other web sites since 1994 and is currently on version 9.0. As has been the case with every major upgrade the entire site and bibliography has gotten an upgrade and spring cleaning, over to the Web 2.0 world using Blog software.
Please do remember this is a working document. In some cases I have not physically confirmed details of an item, in many occasions items are long out of print and considered collectors items. It is as accurate as I can make it with the information available to me.
If you have any questions, comments, corrections, or additions, please, do not hesitate to contact me. Also, let me know if you download this, reprint it elsewhere, or anything. I would be quite interested in anything you have to say about it.
We were listed as a “Cool Site To Visit” at Collecting Comics.Com beginning in the end of January. You can visit this site by going to http://www.collecting-comics.com/
Who Am I?
I am currently Chris Day, the Digital Resources Librarian at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, IL. I also do some freelance work for TwoMorrows Publishing, for whom I design and layout Roy Thomas’ magazine Alter Ego, along with various specialty projects such as the books All-Star Companion Vol. 2 and John Romita …And All That Jazz! And perform improv around Chicago at the Annoyance Theater and Laugh Out Loud Theater. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Bibliography is dedicated to my Father, John Day, who grew up in Painseville, OH (Ellison’s home town), escaped it (Like Ellison), and turned me on to his writings. Now, thanks to Dark Horse and these other publishers, I have another way to connect back to him.
