Love, Sex, Gender, and Superheroes

Jeffrey A. Brown

For nearly a century, comic book superheroes have taught lessons about gender and sexuality. Looking at how modern superhero adventures display taboo topics like fetishism, pornography, love, marriage, eroticized violence, queer identities, transexuality, and orgasms, this book reveals how the spicier underside of superheroes reinforces attitudes about gender and sex, and how some of those assumptions are beginning to change.

Comics and the Origins of Manga

Eike Exner

Comics and the Origins of Manga challenges the conventional wisdom that manga evolved from traditional Japanese art, and reveals how Japanese cartoonists in the 1920s and 1930s instead developed modern manga out of translations of foreign comic strips like Bringing Up Father, Happy Hooligan, and Felix the Cat.
