In »Innovating Superheroes«, Alvise Mattozzi charts stylistic changes in superhero comics through the 1970s and 1980s. Tracking formal shifts in narrative in titles like ›Green Lantern‹, ›Doom Patrol‹, ›Swamp Thing‹, and ›Shade‹, Mattozzi opens up an often marginalized form to rich semiotic analysis – breathing life into the dynamic potential of both comic book scholarship and semitotics alike. Lively and insightful, the following piece goes beyond the presumed status of postmodern texts as non-linear and self-reflexive, and looks into the very mechanisms that make these qualities important – not merely as a cluster of aesthetic choices, but as a language in its own right.
