John Swogger, the illustrator at Çatalhöyük from 1998 to 2006, has a guest post up at Comics Forum entitled "The Sequential Art of the Past: Archaeology, comics and the dynamics of an emerging genre".  He discusses his and others' use of comics to transmit archaeological knowledge to a range of audiences. John has been advocating for the use of comics in archaeology for a while now, including at the Visualisation in Archaeology's 2011 conference, the Society for American Archaeology's 2012 conference. He'll also be at next year's Society for American Archaeology's conference in Hawaii. - Kathryn
