Demanding Respect The Evolution of the American Comic Book

by Paul Lopes

Demanding Respect The Evolution of the American Comic Book Synopsis

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

Demanding Respect The Evolution of the American Comic Book Press 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
