I just found this among my files. It dates from November, 2003. I don't think I saved the entire thread, but there's quite a lot here, and it's probably still the best source of information for the origins of the term. I'm posting it because I think it's an important part of the history of comics scholarship, and the old TCJ Message Board no longer exist. If any participant, however, prefers not to have their comments re-posted here, please contact me and I will delete them.
