		     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
		     rec.arts.comics.alternative


Purpose:	For the discussion of alternative (non-mainstream,
--------	non-superhero) comic books.

Status: 	Unmoderated.
------

Rationale:	The group rec.arts.comics.alternative is proposed to
----------	replace the group alt.comics.alternative, due to the
		propogation problems of that group: many people would
like to read the group and cannot, but do have access to the rec
heirarchy.  The group rec.arts.comics.misc is heavy-traffic, and is
overwhelmingly dominated by the discussion of color superhero comic
books not ordinarily of interest to many readers of alternative comic
books.  In addition, creation of rec.arts.comics.alternative would
considerably boost the visibility of the discussion of alternative
comic books.

Charter:	The purpose of rec.arts.comics.alternative is to
--------	provide a forum for the discussion of alternative
		comic books, which follow in the footsteps of the
1960s' underground comics, in that they defy the common perceptions
that all comics are for children, and that almost all feature
four-color super-heroes.  Comics which easily fall into those genres
well-represented by the comic book industry's mainstream (such as
superheroes, science fiction/fantasy/horror, comics for kids and
teens, and comics based on popular movies or bestsellers) are rarely
considered "alternative."  Alternative comic books treat subjects
unusual for comic books, or sometimes common subjects in unusual ways.
They're most often published in black and white, in much smaller
numbers, and by smaller presses.  They're normally owned by their
creators, and many times even published by them.  Comic books that you
could buy at a convenience store or a newstand are highly unlikely to
be considered alternative.

RFD:	Discussion will last 21 days.  If appropriate, a revised RFD 
----	will be posted after 14 days, reflecting suggestions and 
	opinions provided by the discussion.  After 21 days, or a
period of days suggested by the moderator of the group
news.announce.newgroups, or after an extension of 7 days, a Call For
Votes (CFV) will be issued.  

Distribution:	This RFD is being cross-posted to the following groups:
-------------

The moderated news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, the moderated
rec.arts.comics.info, rec.arts.comics.misc, alt.comics.alternative,
rec.arts.comics.x-books, rec.arts.comics.strips,

alt.fan.albedo, alt.fan.bugtown, alt.fan.furry,
alt.fan.tank-girl, alt.punk, alt.zines, rec.arts.books,

		   2nd REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
		     rec.arts.comics.alternative

Changes to the 1st RFD for this group include:
	1) "non-superhero" was deleted from the "Purpose:" line
	2)  Several changes were made to the charter that involved making
		the descriptions of alternative comic books and
		mainstream comic books more explicit and somewhat
		more quantifiable, to wit:
	    - Delineation of the chief mainstream publishers
	    - Quantifier added to the term "smaller circulation"
	    - General structure of description of alternative comics
		changed
	3) Statement on what to do in case of confusion and the relationship
		of the new group to rec.arts.comics.misc added
	4) A few more minor language and punctuation changes to
		the charter in the interest of clarity
	5) Other sections remain intact and identical to corresponding
		sections in the 1st RFD

Purpose:	For the discussion of alternative (non-mainstream)
--------	comic books.

Status: 	Unmoderated.
------

Rationale:	The group rec.arts.comics.alternative is proposed to
----------	replace the group alt.comics.alternative due to the
		propogation problems of that group: many people would
like to read the group and cannot, but do have access to the rec
hierarchy.  The group rec.arts.comics.misc is heavy-traffic, and is
overwhelmingly dominated by the discussion of mainstream comic books

alternative comic books:
	In contrast to over 80% of comic books today, they are not
published by the chief imprint of the biggest mainstream companies
(DC, Marvel, Image, Valiant, Archie and Disney); comic books that you
could buy at a convenience store or a newsstand would not be
considered alternative.	Alternative comic books focus on subjects not
typically found in comic books or focus on typical subjects in
atypical and innovative ways.  These two qualities are essential.
They are additionally most often published in black and white, in
small circulations (roughly less than 10 of the index currently used
by the major distributors), and are published by the smaller
publishers (i.e. are not delineated above).  They are normally owned by
their creators and many times even published by them.  A majority of
these qualities should be present.
	If a comic doesn't obviously belong in any other group,
including rec.arts.comics.alternative, it should be discussed in the
RAC.misc group.  If you can't tell if a comic belongs in
RAC.alternative, then don't discuss it there; if you can tell, then
discuss away.

RFD:	Discussion will last 22 days from the time of the 1st RFD.
----    After 22 days, or a period of days suggested by the moderator
	of news.announce.newgroups, a Call For Votes (CFV) will be issued.
