This volume provides a complex view of the phenomenon of the comic book / graphic novel in the contemporary world, the functions the medium serves and its variations in individual parts of the globe. Although academic studies of sequential art are a relatively new phenomenon as is the comic book in relation to its older brother, the novel, they can already be seen to fill in a significant gap. The contributors to Negotiating Culture through Comics show that much like comic books serve as a medium for portraying and better understanding the world and especially its inhabitants, so do analyses of graphic novels help identify how such texts function and what role they play for the writer, the readers and the society in which they function.
