Demanding Respect The Evolution of the American Comic Book

Synopsis

Demanding Respect The Evolution of the American Comic Book by Paul Lopes

From pulp comics to Maus, the story of the growth of comics in American culture

Reviews

Demanding Respect is a solid, well-researched social history of the comic book in North America-detailed, thorough, and well-written. Theoretically sophisticated, it moves beyond the existing emphasis on fan culture to encompass the entire comic book art world. This is a valuable contribution to the literature on American popular culture. -Laura Grindstaff, Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Davis

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
