Critical Directions in Comic Studies SC (2020 UPoM) comic books
Edited by Thomas Giddens.
In this edited collection, scholars from a variety of disciplines examine comics by addressing materiality and form as well as the wider economic and political contexts of comics' creation and reception. Through this lens, influenced by poststructuralist theories, contributors explore and elaborate other possibilities for working with comics as a critical resource, consolidating the emergence of these alternative modes of engagement in a single text.
This opens comics studies to a wider array of resources, perspectives, and modes of engagement.
