"Blog:" The Early Years


*We'd be pleased to know the source of this if any comics scholars happen to pass this way.*

*Mystery email attachment solved: The panel comes from The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century :: Joey deVilla's Weblog :: Quite Possibly the First Time the Word "Blog" was Used in Comics

"In honour of "blog" being Merriam-Webster's "Word of the Year" for 2004, here's what I believe is the first occurrence of the word in a comic book...in 1959."

Most likely routed through Treacher, and reported by Way Off Bass

I've heard about this before, and, if I remember this correctly, it was from an old Superman comic. Beyond that I won't venture a guess.

Jim Treacher may have a line on this, seeing as he posted it himself last week.
