9780712357357: Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy

It may come as a surprise that comics offer much more than meets the eye. Of course we all have happy memories of favorite childhood reading (Beano, Dandy, Eagle, Mad, Viz—the list is endless). But how aware are we that there is something inherently anarchic about comics? A huge variety have been produced over the centuries by British creators. It is a strong tradition that continues today. Some of the biggest names in comics—Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta), Neil Gaiman (Sandman), Mark Millar (Kick-Ass), and Grant Morrison (Batman: Arkham Asylum)—are featured in this visually stimulating book. But there are many, many more. And it is the diversity of content and form, as well as comics’ ongoing relevance, which is a main focus. The seditious aspects of the comics tradition—adult, underground, and "alternative" material—is highlighted, alongside the superheroes who still dominate the scene. There is anarchy everywhere that you look!

About the Author:

Paul Gravett has written many books on comics, the most recent ones being Comics Art and 1001 Comics You must Read Before You Die. John Harris Dunning is author of the acclaimed graphic novel Salem Brownstone: All Along the Watchtowers.

Review:

"The authors of this work are journalists well pedigreed in the comics studies field. Here they bring to print a significant volume stemming from their co-curation of a 2014 British Library exhibition of the same name. Their erudite yet readable examination of British comics (and those made by British creators) spans nearly 200 years. Refreshingly, the volume is not simply chronological but is arranged in six chapters on distinct thematic elements (violence, cultural identity, politics, sexuality, heroes, and experimental). Most of the page count consists of lavish, often full-color illustrations, fully sourced and contextualized. The book’s relatively large size and high quality of reproduction allow readers to truly study the artwork. Unlike many books about comics, this volume is illustrated with interior pages of actual sequential art and narrative. . . . Accessible to readers at all levels yet meaty enough for advanced scholars." (CHOICE)
