About this title:

Synopsis: It’s simple comics are fun. Whether fifteen or fifty, we love sitting down with a comic book, losing ourselves in a universe filled with wonder and excitement. But comics offer much more than meets the eye, and in Comics Unmasked, Paul Gravett and John Harris Dunning look beyond the notion of comics as pleasure reading to focus on their inherently anarchic nature.
           
Gravett and Dunning have combed the British Library’s extensive comic collection not only to explore the full potential of the medium but also to single out the critical points in history in which the art form challenged the status quo. Featuring newly discovered Victorian comics alongside some of the biggest names in comics today, including Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta), Neil Gaiman (Sandman), Mark Millar (Kick-Ass), and Grant Morrison (Batman: Arkham Asylum), Comics Unmasked explores the political and social issues raised by British comics and their creators over the last century, from violence and drugs to class and sexuality.
           
Published to accompany a British Library exhibition that will be the United Kingdom’s largest exhibit of British comics to date, Comics Unmasked will delight comics enthusiasts around the world, offering them the chance to discover a different perhaps darker side of the medium.

About the Author: Paul Gravett has written numerous books on comics, including Comics Art and 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die. John Harris Dunning is coauthor of the acclaimed graphic novel Salem Brownstone: All Along the Watchtowers.

Book Description The British Library Publishing Division, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It may come as a surprise that comics offer much more than meets the eye. Of course we all have happy memories of favourite childhood reading (Beano, Dandy, Eagle, Mad, Viz - the list is endless). But how aware are we that there is something inherently anarchic about comics? A huge variety have been produced over the centuries by British creators. It is a strong tradition that continues today. Some of the biggest names in comics - Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta), Neil Gaiman (Sandman), Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Grant Morrison (Batman: Arkham Asylum) - are featured in this visually stimulating book (which accompanies a major exhibition at the British Library). But there are many, many more. And it is the diversity of content and form, as well as comics ongoing relevance, which is a main focus. The seditious aspects of the comics tradition - adult, underground and alternative material - is highlighted, alongside the superheroes who still dominate the scene. There is anarchy everywhere that you look!. Bookseller Inventory # POW9780712357357
