Woah - after three and a half years the comic schema for Schema.org that I started has been published!
schema.org adds support for Comics (through the bibliographic extension)

I'm pleased that schema.org now (as of today's 2.1 "ganymede" release) has decent support for describing comics through the bibliographic extension, with the addition of such types and properties as:

o http://bib.schema.org/ComicCoverArt
o http://bib.schema.org/ComicIssue
o http://bib.schema.org/ComicStory
o http://bib.schema.org/ComicSeries
o http://bib.schema.org/artist
o http://bib.schema.org/colorist
o http://bib.schema.org/inker
o http://bib.schema.org/penciler
o http://bib.schema.org/publisherImprint
o http://bib.schema.org/variantCover

It has been a long time coming. +Peter Olson put together the first proposal ages ago in January, 2012, with Henry Andrews of comics.org and +Thad Guidry rapidly joining in the conversation.

I picked it up in late 2013 primarily to work on the Periodicals side of things, but also wanted to carry through the Comics effort. Periodicals went into core schema.org with a little bit of pain, but it's taken until now to get Comics into the shiny new bib extension. Thankfully +Sean Petiya of the Comic Book Ontology gave it a positive review and helpful suggestions in April (https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-schemabibex/2015Apr/0020.html) to polish the vocabulary.

Many thanks to +Dan Brickley and +Richard Wallis for their work in finishing off the extension infrastructure and making this possible. I'm looking forward to a world of structured comic data!
