About the Author:

Marc DiPaolo is an assistant professor of English and Film at Oklahoma City University. He is a frequent contributor to books and journals, the author of a book about screen adaptations of Jane Austen's Emma, and serves on the editorial board of The Journal of Popular Culture.

Review:

"A thorough, thought-out treatise that offers new ways of looking at comics and film. It will take its place in the annals of exceptional comic book/film scholarship...essential." --Choice.

"This unique work on popular culture is a seamless, well-constructed, deeply researched, sharply written, and politically insightful academic book." --Religious Studies Review

"DiPaolo's command of real-world politics as well as the broad knowledge of so many superhero stories (with "superhero" also defined in a very broad sense) really sells the project. I don't think there is another book like it, and my hope is that it will inspire fanboys who love the superhero narratives to also take more of an interest in the political intrigues and relationships that genuinely affect our lives." --Will Brooker, Kingston University, author of Batman Unmasked and Using the Force.
