Named a Notable Scholarly Publication of 2015 by the Comics Studies Society Contributions by Georgiana Banita, Lan Dong, Ann D'Orazio, Kevin C. Dunn, Alexander Dunst, Jared Gardner, Edward C. Holland, Isabel Macdonald, Brigid Maher, Ben Owen, Rebecca Scherr, Maureen Shay, Marc Singer, Richard Todd Stafford, and Øyvind Vågnes The Comics of Joe Sacco addresses the range of his award-winning work, from his early comics stories as well as his groundbreaking journalism Palestine (1993) and Safe Area to Goražde (2000), to Footnotes in Gaza (2009) and his most recent book The Great War (2013), a graphic history of World War I. First in the series, Critical Approaches to Comics Artists, this edited volume explores Sacco's comics journalism and features established and emerging scholars from comics studies, cultural studies, geography, literary studies, political science, and communication studies. Sacco's work has already found a place in some of the foundational scholarship in comics studies, and this book solidifies his role as one of the most important comics artists today. Sections focus on how Sacco's comics journalism critiques and employs the standard of objectivity in mainstream reporting, what aesthetic principles and approaches to lived experience can be found in his comics, how Sacco employs the space of the comics page to map history and war, and the ways that his comics function in the classroom and as human rights activism. The Comics of Joe Sacco offers definitive, exciting approaches to some of the most important--and necessary--comics today, by one of the most acclaimed journalist-artists of our time.

In the 1970s and 1980s Jewish cartoonists such as Will Eisner were some of the first artists to use the graphic novel as a way to explore their ethnicity. Although similar to their pop culture counterpart, the comic book, graphic novels presented weightier subject matter in more expensive packaging, which appealed to an adult audience and gained them credibility as a genre. The Jewish Graphic Novel is a lively, interdisciplinary collection of essays that addresses critically acclaimed works in this subgenre of Jewish literary and artistic culture. Featuring insightful discussions of notable figures in the industryùsuch as Will Eisner, Art Spiegelman, and Joann Sfarùthe essays focus on the how graphic novels are increasingly being used in Holocaust memoir and fiction, and to portray Jewish identity in America and abroad Featuring more than 85 illustrations, this collection is a compelling representation of a major postmodern ethnic and artistic achievement.

Comics haben sich längst zu einer ernstzunehmenden Gattung gemausert: Graphic Novels werden wie Romane in den Feuilletons rezensiert, Klassiker erscheinen in eigenen Reihen und als hochwertige Liebhaberausgaben, Manga sind aus den Buchhandlungen nicht mehr wegzudenken. Doch was genau sind Comics? Klaus Schikowski führt in die speziellen Formen des Comics ein – vom Strip der frühen Tageszeitungen über die Superhelden-Comics bis zu den Underground Comix, von eigenen Ausformungen wie dem frankobelgischen Comic, den Manga bis hin zu digitalen und Web-Comics. Zahlreiche Abbildungen geben Einblicke in den Stil und die spezielle Technik großer Comic-Schöpfer. Für diese zweite Auflage wurde der Text vollständig überarbeitet und ergänzt.

This is a truly encyclopedic survey of artists’ responses - both official and personal - to the horrors of war. 'Art and War' reveals the sheer diversity of artists’ portrayals of this most devastating aspect of the human condition - from the ‘heroic’ paintings of Benjamin West and John Singer Sargent to brutal and iconic works by artists from Goya to Picasso, and the equally oppositional work of Leon Golub, Nancy Spero and others who reacted with fury to the Vietnam War. Laura Brandon pays particular attention to work produced in response to World War I and World War II, as well as to more recent art and memorial work by artists as diverse as Barbara Kruger, Alfredo Jar and Maya Lin. She looks finally to the reactions of contemporary artists such as Langlands and Bell to the US invasion in 2001 of Afghanistan and the ‘War on Terror’.
