About this item

Originating from the conference “The Future in Comics,” held in Stockholm, Sweden, in September 2015, the 13 essays presented here examine representations of the future in comics and how they reflect the present, similarities in their visions, and creative ideas about the future. English and other scholars from North America, Europe, and Asia consider formal aspects of creativity and how it is used to understand the future, such as in “Here,” From Hell, One Soul, the works of Warren Ellis, manga, and anime; how the future relates to the past and present, such as in Judge Dredd, the gothic genre and the “Dark Age” superhero works of the later 1980s, The Dark Knight Returns, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Kingdom Come, and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind; and comics from specific cultures, such as the Mexican comics La blanda patria and 1874, Swedish avant-garde comics, and American and global superhero movie adaptations of comics.
