This essay collection examines the theory and history of graphic narrative as one of the most interesting and versatile forms of storytelling in contemporary media culture. Its contributions test the applicability of narratological concepts to graphic narrative, examine aspects of graphic narrative beyond the `single work', consider the development of particular narrative strategies within individual genres, and trace the forms and functions of graphic narrative across cultures. Analyzing a wide range of texts, genres, and narrative strategies from both theoretical and historical perspectives, the international group of scholars gathered here offers state-of-the-art research on graphic narrative in the context of an increasingly postclassical and transmedial narratology. This is the revised second edition of From Comic Strips to Graphic Novels, which was originally published in the Narratologia series.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"From Comic Strips to Graphic Novels is an exemplary work of scholarship, and provides an excellent overview of comics research in general, graphic narrative theory in particular." David Herman, author of Storytelling and the Sciences of Mind

"If you need to know where to find the cutting edge of contemporary theorizing about graphic narrative, you have to come to the right place. Crowded into the sixteen essays of this omnibus collection are field-reports from the whole range of graphic narrative theory. Ably edited by Stein and Thon, this volume amounts to a one-stop-shop for graphic narrative theory in the 2010s." Brian McHale, author of Postmodernist Fiction

"Gathering contributions by the most prominent scholars in the field, this volume is a landmark in the study of graphic narrative. The variety of the represented approaches and of the works being examined bears witness to the extraordinary vitality of graphic narrative and graphic narrative studies in contemporary culture, and makes this volume a prime choice as a textbook." Marie Laure Ryan, author of Avatars of Story
