It's not online, but the most parallell example in my memory is Scott  
McCloud's _Understanding Comics_, a theory of comics written/drawn as  
a comic book.

Depending on how you define academic (no, I do not want to open that  
discussion again), Jacob Nielsen's _Alertbox_ (http://useit.com/ 
alertbox) used to be interesting and research-based back in the day,  
before it degenerated into plugs for his own expensive seminars.
