Dispatches from the Hunker Bunker #2: Interesting and fun websites for the quarantined

Over the past three weeks, I’ve gathered some websites that are interesting, engaging, and fun. I’ve assembled a list of some of these sites- taken mostly from the arts, with a few other subjects thrown in for good measure. I’ve also included a few links to some artists that I know, others recommended to me. And of course a few links to graphic literature and comix sites (as well as my dissertation).
