Write The First Customer Review

The first collection of serious essays on the burgeoning cult of adult comic books or graphic novels. Batman - the Dark Knight, Swamp Creature, Watchman, Judge Dredd, Superman and X-men all have devoted readers and huge followings. What accounts for the appeal of a genre whose audience was previously confined to children? Are we now a post-literate generation? What is the cultural context in which comics have become serious reading for men and women on both sides of the Atlantic?
