A complete guide to the history, form and contexts of the genre, Superhero Comics helps readers explore the most successful and familiar of comic book genres.
In an accessible and easy-to-navigate format, the book reveals:
·The history of superhero comics-from mythic influences to 21st century evolutions
·Cultural contexts-from the formative politics of colonialism, eugenics, KKK vigilantism, and WWII fascism to the Cold War’s transformative threat of mutually assured destruction to the on-going revolutions in African American and sexual representation
·Key texts-from the earliest pre-Comics-Code Superman and Batman to the latest post-Code Ms. Marvel and Black Panther
·Approaches to visual analysis-from layout norms to narrative structure to styles of abstraction
