Global Perspectives in Comics Studies
Global Perspectives in Comics Studies focuses on comics as an international form, with histories as rich and complex as the stories that fill the pages. We bring together original scholarship on a wide range of themes and theoretical concerns that span the globe. These texts present outstanding bold interventions into existing scholarly conversations, with the freedom (indeed, explicit encouragement) to collocate works by creators from different national and analytical traditions, as well as genres within the form. The books in the series are concerned with offering fresh perspectives on established concepts and theories through the comics form. Our aim in this series is to forge links across the field, to foreground artistic and academic contexts that are underrepresented, and to give attention to comics in all their various guises. Ultimately, this series wants to encourage readers to challenge their existing perspectives on a form that is central to the reading lives of so many.
