Journals for Academic Papers on Comics

A recent thread on the Comix Scholars list centered around which academic journals typically have papers relating to comics. Here's the list that developed:

* International Journal of Comic Art
* Journal of Popular Culture
* Journal of American Culture
* ImageText (online)
* Media Culture & Society
* Rhetoric Review
* International Journal of Cultural Studies
* Feminist Studies

Most respondants concured that the quality of the comics-related articles in the Journal of Popular Culture and Journal of American Culture were low on the whole, although you can find a few gems.

Journal of Popular Culture is basically a vanity operation (you have to subscribe to be published in it) which exists for mediocre academics to accumulate publication credits.
