Superheroes in Crisis by historian Jeffrey K. Johnson is the second book in the Comics Studies Monograph Series from RIT Press, and we’ve got’em in stock!
From the publisher:
As the founding fathers of the superhero comic books, Superman and Batman have defined a genre of American mythology from the mid-twentieth century to the present. The author describes how the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight dealt with their midlife crises brought on by the cultural and social changes of the 1960s and 1970s. Johnson describes how the superheroes’ problems and adaptations mirror much of American societal changes during that time.
We’re also re-stocked on the first book in this series, Barbara Postema’s Narrative Structure in Comics. Both books are available for $34.95.
