No matter whether you call it picture book, manga, strip, graphic novel, or simply comic, it is undeniable that over the past thirty years, the image of sequential art in all its varieties has changed from a cheap form of entertainment for youngsters to a medium as cherished as novels and films. This timely publication aims to engage critically with issues in and around the production and perception of all types of graphic narratives. Mirroring the hybridity and complexity of graphic novels themselves, this essay collection brings together the works of scholars from various fields ranging from literature and culture to history, from social science to art. From manifold perspectives, it elaborates on topics like the perception and production of comics in and by different cultures, intertextuality and narrative techniques, the construction of identities within and by graphic narratives as well as the interpretation and depiction of historical landmarks by comic book artists.
