issues such as authorship, ethics, adaptation, and translating comics;





connections between comics and other artistic media (drawing, caricature, film) as well as the linkages between comics and other academic fields like linguistics and philosophy;





new perspectives on comics genres, from funny animal comics to war comics to romance comics and beyond.
