As American as jazz or rock and roll, comic books have been central in the nation’s popular culture since Superman’s 1938 debut in Action Comics #1. In Comic Book Nation, Bradford W. Wright offers an engaging, illuminating, and often provocative history of the comic book industry within the context of twentieth-century American society.
From Batman’s Depression-era battles against corrupt local politicians and Captain America’s one-man war against Nazi Germany to Iron Man’s Cold War exploits in Vietnam and Spider-Man’s confrontations with student protestors and drug use in the early 1970s, comic books have continually reflected the national mood, as Wright’s imaginative reading of thousands of titles makes clear. In every genre, Wright finds that writers and illustrators used the medium to address a variety of serious issues.
Wright’s lively study also focuses on the role comic books played in transforming children and adolescents into consumers; the efforts of parents, politicians, religious organizations, civic groups, and child psychologists to link juvenile delinquency to comic books and impose censorship; and the changing economics of comic book publishing over the course of the century. Comic Book Nation is at once a serious study of popular culture and an entertaining look at an enduring American art form.

"So Katy Wix has written this book of comic monologues and I may have to steal some of them. Although written for the female voice, I dare say they would stand up very well if you were a gentleman and changed the odd word or two. Here you have a book filled with brilliant characters and much funny. Each piece is bubbling with the quirky genius that makes Miss Wix one of the funniest performers / writers around." – Jennifer Saunders, from her foreword.

Jews created the first comic book, the first graphic novel, the first comic book convention, the first comic book specialty store, and they helped create the underground comics (or "Comix") movement of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Many of the creators of the most famous comic books, such as Superman, Spiderman, X-Men, and Batman, as well as the founders of MAD magazine, were Jewish. From Krakow to Krypton: Jews and Comic Books tells their stories and demonstrates how they brought a uniquely Jewish perspective to their work and to the comics industry as a whole. Over-sized and in full color, From Krakow to Krypton is filled with sidebars, cartoon bubbles, comic book graphics, original design sketches, and photographs.

Comic Book Punks How a Generation of Brits Reinvented Pop Culture [Audiobook]


Free Download Comic Book Punks: How a Generation of Brits Reinvented Pop Culture (Audiobook)
English | ASIN: B0CKTYGDDT | 2023 | 15 hours and 26 minutes | M4B@64 kbps | 426 MB
Author: Karl Stock
Narrator: Liam Gerrard

The influence of the comic book has never been greater, from movies to streaming and beyond, but the journey comics took from little-regarded kids’ magazines to literary prize-winning books and global franchises turned on a highly unusual group of writers and artists. Few would have expected a small gathering of British comic book fans and creators in the early ‘seventies to be a global cultural pivot-point, but this was the start of a disparate movement of punks, dropouts, and disaffected youths who reinvented a medium and became the imaginative heart of a global success story. Based on years of interviews with a generation of leading writers, artists, and editors, Karl Stock reveals the true story of the wild times, passion, and determination that helped, hindered, and saw the reinvention of comics. Stock brilliantly tells the story of the triumphs and disasters that rewrote the rulebook on what comics could be and who they should be for.
