Multiculturalism, and its representation, has long presented challenges for the medium of comics. This book presents a wide ranging survey of the ways in which comics have dealt with the diversity of creators and characters and the (lack of) visibility for characters who don’t conform to particular cultural stereotypes. Contributors engage with ethnicity and other cultural forms from Israel, Romania, North America, South Africa, Germany, Spain, U.S. Latino and Canada and consider the ways in which comics are able to represent multiculturalism through a focus on the formal elements of the medium. Discussion themes include education, countercultures, monstrosity, the quotidian, the notion of the ‘other," anthropomorphism, and colonialism. Taking a truly international perspective, the book brings into dialogue a broad range of comics traditions.

This book considers the history of Do It Yourself art, music and publishing, demonstrating how DIY strategies have transitioned from being marginal, to emergent, to embedded. Through secondary research, observation and 30 original interviews, each chapter analyses one of 15 creative cities (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dusseldorf, New York, London, Manchester, Cologne, Washington DC, Detroit, Berlin, Glasgow, Olympia (Washington), Portland (Oregon), Moscow and Istanbul) and assesses the contemporary situation in each in the post-subcultural era of digital and internet technologies. The book challenges existing subcultural histories by examining less well-known scenes as well as exploring DIY "best practices" to trace a template of best approaches for sustainable, independent, locally owned creative enterprises.

This book asks the reader to consider the ways in which violence and its representations may be enabled or restricted by the contexts in which they take place. It analyzes how structures and organising principles, be they political, cultural, religious, legal or historical, might encourage, demand or prevent violence. It also deals with the issue of scale: violence in the context of war versus violence in the context of an individual murder. It provides insights into violence in comics in the context of war and peace; ethnic, religious and identity-based violence; as well as the legal and historical contexts of violence. Together with Representing Acts of Violence in Comics, it offers a nuanced examination of the ways in which violence in comics is presented in different texts, genres, cultures and contexts.

This book examines the ways in whichindividual moments of violence develop, and are presented, in comics and graphic novels. It raises questions about depiction and the act of showing violence, but it also considers the ways in which violence can affect those involved over the long term. The impact of gender on violence, as well as the nature of sexual violence, are both considered here. Contributors discuss the ways in which violent acts can be rendered palatable (for example through humour) but also how they can create enormous trauma and long lasting repercussions for both perpetrators and victims. Together with Contexts of Violence in Comics, it offers a nuanced examination of the ways in which violence in comics is presented in different texts, genres, cultures and contexts.
