Taking Comics Seriously

A great article over at Scene about “Taking Comics Seriously” as both art and literature with a sociological look at the graphic novel! Check it out! Also over at Comics Alliance, they explore “What Age of comics are we currently in?” (Which has to account for the 1990s kookiness of platinum-cover speculators and superstar creators if we’re gonna wrap our noggins around  the current Hollywood Zeitgeist.) Meanwhile, Justice League #12 is teasing the superhook-up of Wonder Woman and Superman, tho not everyone is keen on the idea.

Be sure to check back here for updates to the summer 2013 offerings of MYTHIC RHETORIC OF SUPERHEROES at UNT in the Department of Communication Studies, as well as the Spring 2013 UNT Comics Studies Symposium!
