How can comics storytelling stay exciting and innovative? How can genres be kept alive? And what makes a successful comics creator? These are the questions writers and artists working in the highly competitive US comics mainstream have always had to ask. But they were especially pressing in the 1980s. As comics readers grew older, they started to call for more sophisticated stories. They were also no longer just following the adventures of popular characters-writers and artists with an immediately recognizable style and personality were in high demand as well. DC Comics and Marvel went looking for such mavericks, and they found them in the United Kingdom: creators like Alan Moore (Watchmen, Saga of the Swamp Thing), Grant Morrison (The Invisibles, Flex Mentallo, JLA), and Garth Ennis (Preacher) migrated from the anarchical British comics industry to the US mainstream and shook up the status quo. This book explores the relationship between their works and the mainstream comic book style that was dominant at the time-how the British Invasion subverted the norm, but also the many ways in which the movement came to rely on the genius of the American system.

The sketching stage is integral to any piece of art - it forms the foundations that everything else balances on. Sketches can often provide interesting insights into the processes and thinking behind the finished piece as well as showing off technique and skill. An artist's sketchbook is sacred and personal - often thought of like a diary - filled with uncensored thoughts, emotions and unique flourishes that are special to them. The freewheeling excitement in sketches - where artists don't hold back, don't over-think, don't censor - is hard to beat. Sketchbook is about captured moments bursting with creativity, straight from the minds of the finest illustrators around the world. Whether made by pencil or stylus, sketches may be loose and generous or precise and economic, but all reveal something about the pure fun of creation. Whether you're a practising fantasy artist, a student or even a hobbyist wanting to take your skills further, there's something here for you: so, dive in and discover crazy creatures, cool futuristic vehicles and stunning expansive environments

Animating the Science Fiction Imagination (Paperback): J. P. Telotte Animating the Science Fiction Imagination (Paperback)
J. P. Telotte
R623 Discovery Miles 6 230 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Long before flying saucers, robot monsters, and alien menaces invaded our movie screens in the 1950s, there was already a significant but overlooked body of cinematic science fiction. Through analyses of early twentieth-century animations, comic strips, and advertising, Animating the Science Fiction Imagination unearths a significant body of cartoon science fiction from the pre-World War II era that appeared at approximately the same time the genre was itself struggling to find an identity, an audience, and even a name. In this book, author J.P. Telotte argues that these films helped sediment the genre's attitudes and motifs into a popular culture that found many of those ideas unsettling, even threatening. By binding those ideas into funny and entertaining narratives, these cartoons also made them both familiar and non-threatening, clearing a space for visions of the future, of other worlds, and of change that could be readily embraced in the post-war period.

Distinguishing the graphic novel from other types of comic books has presented problems due to the fuzziness of category boundaries. Against the backdrop of prototype theory, the author establishes the graphic novel as a genre whose core feature is complexity, which again is defined by seven gradable subcategories: 1) multilayered plot and narration, 2) multireferential use of color, 3) complex text-image relation, 4) meaning-enhancing panel design and layout, 5) structural performativity, 6) references to texts/media, and 7) self-referential and metafictional devices. Regarding the subcategory of narration, the existence of a narrator as known from classical narratology can no longer be assumed. In addition, conventional focalization cannot account for two crucial parameters of the comics image: what is shown (point of view, including mise en scene) and what is seen (character perception). On the basis of Francois Jost's concepts of ocularization and focalization, this book presents an analytical framework for graphic novels beyond conventional narratology and finally discusses aspects of subjectivity, a focal paradigm in the latest research. It is intended for advanced students of literature, scholars, and comics experts.

Marvel Comics is home to such legendary super-heroes as Spider-Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man, all of whom have spun box office gold in the 21st century. But Marvel Comics has a secret history hidden in the shadows of these well-known franchises.

The Secret History of Marvel Comics digs back to the 1930s when Marvel Comics wasn't just a comic-book producing company. Marvel Comics owner Martin Goodman had tentacles into a publishing world that might have made that era s conservative American parents lynch him on his front porch. Marvel was but a small part of Goodman s publishing empire, which had begun years before he published his first comic book. Goodman mostly published lurid and sensationalistic story books (known as pulps ) and magazines, featuring sexually-charged detective and romance short fiction, and celebrity gossip scandal sheets. And artists like Jack Kirby, who was producing Captain America for eight-year-olds, were simultaneously dipping their toes in both ponds.

The Secret History of Marvel Comics tells this parallel story of 1930s/40s Marvel Comics sharing offices with those Goodman publications not quite fit for children. The book also features a comprehensive display of the artwork produced for Goodman s other enterprises by Marvel Comics artists such as Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, Alex Schomburg, Bill Everett, Al Jaffee, and Dan DeCarlo, plus the very best pulp artists in the field, including Norman Saunders, John Walter Scott, Hans Wesso, L.F. Bjorklund, and Marvel Comics #1 cover artist Frank R. Paul. Goodman s magazines also featured cover stories on celebrities such as Jackie Gleason, Elizabeth Taylor, Liberace, and Sophia Loren, as well as contributions from famous literary and social figures such as Isaac Asimov, Theodore Sturgeon, and L. Ron Hubbard.

These rare pieces of comic art, pulp and magazine history will open the door to Marvel Comics unseen history."
