Book Summary: Suddenly, comics are everywhere: a newly matured art form, filling bookshelves with brilliant, innovative work and shaping the ideas and images of the rest of contemporary culture. In Reading Comics, critic Douglas Wolk shows us why and how. Wolk illuminates the most dazzling creators of modern comics-from Alan Moore to Alison Bechdel to Chris Ware-and explains their roots, influences, and where they fit into the pantheon of art. As accessible to the hardcore fan as to the curious newcomer, Reading Comics is the first book for people who want to know not just which comics are worth reading, but ways to think and talk and argue about them.

Fighting American and Speedboy are struggling to fit into the strange new world of the 21st Century, unaware that one of their old enemies, the notorious Doubleheader, is now the secret head of the FBI and is plotting to destroy them once and for all. Then there’s the news of a long lost Grandson and Great Grandson (or should that be Nephew and Great Nephew?), a bust-up between Fighting American and Speedboy, and a ruthless TV news anchor determined to shatter FA’s all-American hero image on live TV. It’s clear to see that life’s never easy when you’re America’s only superhero! This all-new adventure, written by Gordon Rennie (Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, and Missionary Man) and drawn by Andie Tong (Spectacular Spider-Man, The Batman Strikes, and Tekken), sees the ultimate icon of truth, justice and the American Way bringing some much-needed two-fisted justice to a jaded cynical world of multimedia, fake news and global terrorism. Collects Fighting American #2.1-4. “A top of the pile book, better than many of the DC and Marvels out there right now.” – Nerdly “Fighting American has the whiz of classic comics with a twist you won’t want to miss.” – Adventures In Poor Taste

Book Summary: The intersections of law and contemporary culture are vital for comprehending the meaning and significance of law in today’s world. Far from being unsophisticated mass entertainment, comics and graphic fiction both imbue our contemporary culture, and are themselves imbued, with the concerns of law and justice. Accordingly, and spanning a wide variety of approaches and topics from an international array of contributors, Graphic Justice draws comics and graphic fiction into the range of critical resources available to the academic study of law. The first book to do this, Graphic Justice broadens our understanding of law and justice as part of our human world—a world that is inhabited not simply by legal concepts and institutions alone, but also by narratives, stories, fantasies, images, and other cultural articulations of human meaning. Engaging with key legal issues (including copyright, education, legal ethics, biomedical regulation, and legal personhood) and exploring critical issues in criminal justice and perspectives on international rights, law and justice—all through engagement with comics and graphic fiction—the collection showcases the vast breadth of potential that the medium holds. Graphic Justice will be of interest to academics and postgraduate students in: cultural legal studies; law and the image; law, narrative and literature; law and popular culture; cultural criminology; as well as cultural and comics studies more generally.

Book Summary: The fantastic return of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s legendary two-fisted superhero, originally created back in 1954. Fighting American, the ultimate icon of truth, justice and the American Way, and his young teenage sidekick, Speedboy, have found themselves marooned in the 21st Century whilst on the trail of a gang of villains plucked from their past by a mysterious villainess known only as Lady Chaos… Now, there’s nothing left for them to do but to bring some much-needed two-fisted justice and home-spun 1950s grit to a modern, media-obsessed, cynical world. This critically-acclaimed, all-new adventure, written by Gordon Rennie (‘Judge Dredd’, ‘Rogue Trooper’, and ‘Missionary Man’) and drawn by Duke Mighten (‘Batman: Book of Shadows’, ‘Accident Man’, and ‘Doom Force’) and PC De La Fuente (‘Robin’, ‘Batgirl’), sees the rebirth of a true American Hero! “Titan Comics might have just given us a fast-paced modern classic in Fighting American. 5 out of 5.” – Comic Bastards “I honestly want you guys to read this book.
