Comics as Culture (K)


These eleven essays by one of America's authorities on popular culture survey the influence of the comic strip and the importance of the comic book. Despite legions of detractors, he shows the comics to be an art form that has enriched and reflecte most of American culture.

The chapters are unified by their discussion of the ways comic strips, cartoons, and comic books relate to the larger cultural trends of the nation. Connections between literature, film, technology, art, and the comics are examined in general, with specific appreciations of such classic examples of the comics as Little Nemo in Slumberland, Krazy Kat, Snuffy Smith, Popeye, Peanuts, EC comic books, and the New Yorker cartoon.

Why do comics both amuse and arouse controversy? Here is an attempt at an answer in a sharp-eyed comics lover's probing look at this step-child genre. He finds them a legitimate form of creative expression capable of confronting the major questions of society and the humanities but with a gentler spirit that leads to laughter.

Also included in this appealing overview of an expressly American art form are bibliographic surveys of the histories, reference works, and anthologies available for the study and appreciation of comic strips and comic books.
