Jason Dittmer edits new book

Comic Book Geographies

This month sees the publication by Franz Steiner Verlag of a new edited book examining the intersection of space, place, and the graphic narratives found in comic books.

Bringing together scholars from geography and the nascent field of comics studies, the chapters in this volume all consider the ways in which space, time, and narrative are mutually intertwined on (and off) the pages of comic books.

The chapters draw from many parts of the world, from post-9/11 American superhero comics to Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées, and a spoken-word performance by comics legend Alan Moore in the heart of London.

Collectively, however, the chapters can be understood as establishing a dialogue between disciplinary traditions (geography, literature, history, etc.) that have too long been kept apart.
