No. 32 – Comics and/or Graphic Novels (2021)

Edited by Vittorio Frigerio

“Comics and/or Graphic Novels offers a historically-informed and theoretically-insightful analysis that productively complicates the typical narrative of comics’ evolution from unsophisticated, popular, commercial origins toward more respectable aesthetic maturity. The volume’s rich transnational scope also usefully challenges the national biases often seen within comics criticism, enabling an approach that foregrounds comics and graphic novels as complex, multidimensional transmedia productions.” – David Higgins, Inver Hills College, Senior Editor, Los Angeles Review of Books
