New Look

Yes, the organization has a new logo… and the site a new look.

Sequart Research & Literacy OrganizationFirst things first: the logo comes after much discussion about how the old, horizontal one just wasn’t doing it visually. We didn’t want to be too commercial and include a cartoon dog or anything, but we wanted something a bit more visually appealing. We hope this does it for you.

Second, we’ve streamlined the site a bit. We’ve used the added space up top, freed up by getting rid of the horizontal logo, to move our navigational links from the left to the top. This, in turn, makes the search and our recent books appear higher on the page.

We know there haven’t been as many site updates lately, and we’re taking steps to address this problem. Honestly, we’ve never quite recovered from converting the site from Sequart.com to Sequart.org, which was an enormous task. A full reprogramming, incorporating many features long talked about, is long overdue.

In other news, our long delayed book Mutant Cinema: The X-Men Trilogy from Comics to Screen, by Thomas J. McLean, is at last complete and going to press. It should be available later this month, and we’ll update you as we have news. It’s a truly excellent and exhaustive work.

We have other books in the pipeline too, but we’ll have to hold off on news about them until we’re a little closer to publication.

Thanks for sticking with us, and we look forward to a bright future together.
