Summary: "This anthology hosts a collection of essays examining the role of comics as portals for historical and academic content while keeping the approach on an international market versus the American one. Few resources currently exist showing the cross-disciplinary aspects of comics, including the use of Wonder Woman during World War II, the development and culture of French comics, and the theories of Locke and Hobbes in regard to the state of nature and the bonds of community. The continual use of comics for the retelling of classic tales and current events further demonstrates that the genre has long passed the phase of "for children's eyes only." Additionally, this anthology weaves graphic novels into the dialogue with comics"--Back cover.
