More Details..

Superheroes have been the major genre to emerge from comics and graphic novels, saturating popular culture with images of muscular men and sexy women. A major aspect of this genre is identity in the roles played by individuals, the development of identities through extended stories and in the ways the characters inspire audiences. This collection analyses stories from popular comics franchises such as Batman, Captain America, Ms Marvel and X-Men, alongside less well known comics such as Kabuki and Flex Mentallo. It explores what superhero narratives can reveal about our attitudes towards femininity, race, maternity, masculinity and queer culture. Using this approach, the volume asks questions such as why there are no black supervillains in mainstream comics, how second wave feminism and feminist film theory may help us to understand female comic book characters, the ways in which Flex Mentallo transcends the boundaries of straightness and gayness and how both fans and industry appropriate the sexual identity of superheroes.

The book was originally published in a special issue of the Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics.

For the first time in one volume, The Analects illustrated by bestselling cartoonist C. C. Tsai

C. C. Tsai is one of Asia's most popular cartoonists, and his editions of the Chinese classics have sold more than 40 million copies in over twenty languages. This volume presents Tsai's delightful graphic adaptation of The Analects, one of the most influential books of all time and a work that continues to inspire countless readers today.

Tsai's expressive drawings bring Confucius and his students to life as no other edition of the Analects does. See Confucius engage his students over the question of how to become a leader worth following in a society of high culture, upward mobility, and vicious warfare. Which virtues should be cultivated, what makes for a harmonious society, and what are the important things in life? Unconcerned with religious belief but a staunch advocate of tradition, Confucius emphasizes the power of society to create sensitive, respectful, and moral individuals. In many ways, Confucius speaks directly to modern concerns--about how we can value those around us, educate the next generation, and create a world in which people are motivated to do the right thing.

A marvelous introduction to a timeless classic, this book also features an illuminating foreword by Michael Puett, coauthor of The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us about the Good Life. In addition, Confucius's original Chinese text is artfully presented in narrow sidebars on each page, enriching the books for readers and students of Chinese without distracting from the self-contained English-language cartoons. The text is skillfully translated by Brian Bruya, who also provides an introduction.

A delightfully illustrated version of Sunzi’s classic The Art of War by bestselling cartoonist C. C. Tsai

C. C. Tsai is one of Asia's most popular cartoonists, and his editions of the Chinese classics have sold more than 40 million copies in over twenty languages. This volume presents Tsai's delightful graphic adaptation of Sunzi's Art of War, the most profound book on warfare and strategy ever written--a work that continues to be read as a handbook for success not just by military commanders but also by leaders in politics, business, and many other fields.

Conceived by a Chinese warrior-philosopher some 2,500 years ago, The Art of War speaks to those aspiring to rise through the ranks and help build successful countries. How can that goal best be achieved, and what is the role of warfare, if any, in the process? What are the powers and limits of the general in command? How can you win without going to war? Sunzi's answers to these and other questions are brought to life as never before by Tsai's brilliant cartoons, which show Sunzi fighting on dangerous ground, launching a surprise attack, spying on his enemies, and much more.

A marvelously rich introduction to a timeless classic, this book also features a foreword by Lawrence Freedman, one of the world's leading authorities on military strategy, which illuminates how The Art of War has influenced Western strategic thought. In addition, Sunzi's original Chinese text is artfully presented in narrow sidebars on each page, enriching the books for readers and students of Chinese without distracting from the self-contained English-language cartoons. The text is skillfully translated by Brian Bruya, who also provides an introduction.

This book is a detailed study of the Indian graphic novel as a significant category of South Asian literature. It focuses on the genre’s engagement with history, memory and cultural identity and its critique of the nation in the form of dissident histories and satire. Deploying a nuanced theoretical framework, the volume closely examines major texts such as The Harappa Files, Delhi Calm, Kari, Bhimayana, Gardener in the Wasteland, Pao Anthology, and authors and illustrators including Sarnath Banerjee, Vishwajyoti Ghosh, Durgabai Vyam, Amrutha Patil, Srividya Natarajan and others. It also explores — using key illustrations from the texts — critical themes like contested and alternate histories, urban realities, social exclusion, contemporary politics, and identity politics.

A major intervention in Indian writing in English, this volume will be of great importance to scholars and researchers of South Asian literature, cultural studies, art and visual culture, and sociology.

Persia had Rustam; Babylonia had Gilgamesh and Enkidu; Egypt had Horus, Osiris, and Isis; Greece had Odysseus, Heracles, and Achilles; Moab had the sons of Ariel; Canaan had Dan'el, Keret, and Aqhat; and Israel? Israel had its heroes, tooMoses, David, Esther, and Samsonand not all warrior figures. While Israel's heroes didn't wear capes or spandex, they, like modern American superheroes, did nevertheless satisfy certain cultural needs.

In times of crises, such as the aftermath of exile for ancient Israel and World War II and 9/11 for the US, these heroes emerged to model necessary virtues that inspired emulation and a sense of commitment amidst cultural struggles with a sense of worth and identity. The concerns of identity and integration with a dominant culture were especially acute for a post-exilic Jewish culture. By using modern American superheroes and their stories as cross-cultural conversation partners, this book uniquely presents the stories of select Israelite characters as hero stories (beyond that as models of faith) while discerning those needs such (super)hero figures would have satisfied for a post-exilic Jewish culture.

More Details..

Rowena Sunder, still an artist in 2018, composes a meta auto-biographical book about five years of her life in New York City between 1965 and 1970. She escapes Toledo and her father's idea that she should marry and paint on Sundays and drives away in her VW bug. She sells one painting on the way, and arrives in the big city during one of its most exciting times. She works at the (invented) Museum of Invention, sublets on E. 94th Street, makes friends, acquires a cat named Kittyhawk, and finds NYC much to her liking. After selling paintings to a psychotherapist, he listens while she struggles with mixed feelings about focus. She finally rejoices in the swarm of ideas that come to her from everywhere. Now, a half-century later, she draws her book, and talks directly to the reader in a series of vignettes, all connected by her gift of too many ideas. Rowena loves words and puns and little jokes and these add other perspectives to every page.

The director, producer and screenwriter Joss Whedon is acclaimed as a major creative force in television, movies, comic books, and a host of other media. His output has been so vast and diverse that tracking everything he has created has become an ongoing challenge. This inventory and bibliographic guide provides a complete, accurate, and authoritative survey of Whedon's work. The book covers over 20 Whedon projects, ranging from his earliest script writing work on Roseanne, through his many movie and television undertakings (including Toy Story, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly/Serenity, Dr. Horrible, The Cabin in the Woods, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), up to his latest ventures into blockbuster superhero movies with Marvel's The Avengers. This is the first book to organize and describe all of Whedon's work. It covers both the original texts of the Whedonverse (TV episodes, DVDs, scripts, music, novels, comic books, games, and more) and the secondary materials created about Whedon's projects, including 2,000 books, essays, articles, documentaries, and dissertations.

Wolverine. Logan. Weapon X: by any name you choose an anti-social savage that kills with gratuitous precision, a self-identified assassin who by his own words IS the best at what he does, regardless of what he does not being very nice. Marvel Comics's most complex and captivating antihero Wolverine is paradoxically the most deviant yet humane of all mutants. Rejected by the balance of mankind ludicrously termed humanity, experimented on by his own corrupt government, universally misjudged yet esteemed by his myriad fans, this beer-loving and cigar-smoking Canadian character has steadily ascended in popularity since his first appearance in the last panel of The Incredible Hulk #180. Wolverine's uniquely amalgamated psyche of man and mutant, reveals in many ways our own human complexities and contradictions. His journey is a thought-provoking, indeed inspiring reminder of our own transformational power of resiliency through trial and torment. From his greatest triumphs to his most disheartening downfalls, through loves and losses, victories and defeats, Untamed delivers, for the first time, the psychological exploration of a myth, a purposeful creation, a modern legend that peels the layers of why this legend rises to the level of allegory, and why we ascribe to a current pulp antihero the status of time-honored parable.
