I'll be teaching a university primer course on comics pretty soon, and while I've got my primary texts (Eisner, McCloud, Moore, Gaiman, Spiegelman etc.), I'm looking for some sample pages for the first one or two sessions where we'll look at formal features and things to analyse. I'll probably grab some pages from Ghost World
, Y: Last Man
and a few other comics I've got myself, but I'd quite like to give them a page or two from classic/iconic comics, e.g. a Batman
(nothing too modern or experimental) and something like Mickey Mouse
or Donald Duck
(something by Carl Barks?).
Can I find the latter (iconic super hero page, classic Disney comic) on the web, legally, in okay to good quality? I'm not looking for scans of the entire books, just a page each, so we can look at things such as iconic characters, the use of frames etc. Since I live in Switzerland, it's not all that easy to get these in a library.
