Abstract
The first critical guide to cover the history, form and key critical issues of the medium, Webcomics helps readers explore the diverse and increasingly popular worlds of online comics.
In an accessible and easy-to-navigate format, the book covers such topics as:
  • The history of webcomics and how developments in technology from the 1980s onwards presented new opportunities for comics creators and audiences
  • Cultural contexts – from the new financial and business models allowed by digital media to social justice causes in contemporary webcomics
  • Key texts – from early examples of the form such as Girl Genius and Penny Arcade to popular current titles such as Questionable Content and Dumbing of Age
  • Important theoretical and critical approaches to studying webcomics

Webcomics includes a glossary of crucial critical terms, annotated guides to further reading, and online resources and discussion questions to help students and readers develop their understanding of the genre and pursue independent study.
