MEDIA REVIEWS
?Regardless, though, considered as a whole, The Art of Comicsis an excellent collection and one which is likely to provoke spirited debate and serve as a spur to further research within Anglo-American philosophy (and philosophy more generally) into this sadly neglected art form. I, for one, look forward to these future developments immensely. To quote one of the greats in the history of comics?excelsior!.? (British Journal of Aesthetics, 1 October 2013) ?The Art of Comics would make a fine addition to any undergraduate reading list, introducing as it does several important notions in contemporary aesthetics.? (The Journal of Aesthetics & Art Criticism, 1 November 2013)
