Book Description
From 1910 to 2009, Volume Three spans an entire century, but that may not be enough time for the League to defeat their newest threat. Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's pulp adventure literary mash-up returns. The nineteenth century, expiring with a flourish of Moriarty and Martians, has left the Division of Military Intelligence commanded by Mina Murray in a state of disrepair. While she and her lover, Allan Quatermain, have achieved a measure of eternal youth and recruited new talents such as the trans-gendered immortal Orlando, the ghost-finder Thomas Carnacki, and the gentleman thief A.J. Raffles to replace their deceased or missing colleagues, former associate Captain Nemo has retired to his Pacific pirate island to decline in surly isolation. Now it is the early years of a new and unfamiliar century, and forces are emerging that appear to promise ruin for the Murray group, the nation, and, indeed, the world, even if it will take a hundred years for this apocalyptic threat to come to its disastrous fruition. From the occult parlours and crime-haunted wharfs of 1910, through the criminal, mystical, and psychedelic underworlds of 1969, to the financially and culturally desolated streets of 2009, the disintegrating remnants of Miss Murray and her League must combat not only the hidden hand of their undying adversary, but also the ethical and psychological collapse accompanying this new era. And a lot of things can happen in a CENTURY!

Representing Multiculturalism in Comics and Graphic Novels

Representing Multiculturalism in Comics and Graphic Novels PDF Author: Carolene Ayaka
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 1317687167
Category : Social Science
Languages : en
Pages : 286

Book Description
Multiculturalism, and its representation, has long presented challenges for the medium of comics. This book presents a wide ranging survey of the ways in which comics have dealt with the diversity of creators and characters and the (lack of) visibility for characters who don’t conform to particular cultural stereotypes. Contributors engage with ethnicity and other cultural forms from Israel, Romania, North America, South Africa, Germany, Spain, U.S. Latino and Canada and consider the ways in which comics are able to represent multiculturalism through a focus on the formal elements of the medium. Discussion themes include education, countercultures, monstrosity, the quotidian, the notion of the ‘other," anthropomorphism, and colonialism. Taking a truly international perspective, the book brings into dialogue a broad range of comics traditions.

Breaking the Frames

Breaking the Frames PDF Author: Marc Singer
Publisher: University of Texas Press
ISBN: 1477317104
Category : Literary Criticism
Languages : en
Pages : 311

Book Description
Comics studies has reached a crossroads. Graphic novels have never received more attention and legitimation from scholars, but new canons and new critical discourses have created tensions within a field built on the populist rhetoric of cultural studies. As a result, comics studies has begun to cleave into distinct camps—based primarily in cultural or literary studies—that attempt to dictate the boundaries of the discipline or else resist disciplinarity itself. The consequence is a growing disconnect in the ways that comics scholars talk to each other—or, more frequently, do not talk to each other or even acknowledge each other’s work. Breaking the Frames: Populism and Prestige in Comics Studies surveys the current state of comics scholarship, interrogating its dominant schools, questioning their mutual estrangement, and challenging their propensity to champion the comics they study. Marc Singer advocates for greater disciplinary diversity and methodological rigor in comics studies, making the case for a field that can embrace more critical and oppositional perspectives. Working through extended readings of some of the most acclaimed comics creators—including Marjane Satrapi, Alan Moore, Kyle Baker, and Chris Ware—Singer demonstrates how comics studies can break out of the celebratory frameworks and restrictive canons that currently define the field to produce new scholarship that expands our understanding of comics and their critics.

Book Description
The apocalyptic climax of the third and most ambitious volume to contain the League's unfolding narrative, CENTURY: 2009 turns its scrutiny of the entire fictional landscape to the presently uproarious era as it hurtles to a staggering conclusion that even immortal champions may not survive. The eternal ambiguity Orlando is returned to an unrecognisable contemporary London and a collapsing world of moral, social and financial destitution. The intended antichrist is born, and even the most powerful eminences of the Blazing World have not been able to forestall his coming.
