Superhero Symbol: Media, Culture, and Politics SC (2019 RUP) comic books
By Liam Burke.
It is hard to imagine a time when superheroes have been more pervasive in our culture. Bringing together superhero scholars from a range of disciplines, alongside key industry figures such as Harley Quinn co-creator Paul Dini, The Superhero Symbol provides fresh perspectives on how characters like Captain America, Iron Man, and Wonder Woman have engaged with media, culture, and politics, to become the "everlasting" symbols to which a young Bruce Wayne once aspired.
Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 288 pages, Text (with color illustrations).
