A volume in the Cultural Politics series. "For a long time arguments have been advanced, mostly in very general term s, about the power of the mass media, but one medium has attracted just about all the main kinds of claims about its effects: comics. This book systematically re-examines claims about media influence through the arguments over comics. There are case-studies on the Beano and other 'funnies', Jackie and romance, Action and 'violence', Bunty and 'fantasy', and Disney and cultural imperialism. In each case, the book both re-examines the theories and methods used, and returns to the origianl comics -- reproducing some for readers. Approaches to comics ranging from traditional 'effects' theory to post-structuralist analysis are tested; and concepts such as 'identification'and 'stereotype' systematically explored for the first time. Through these , a new theorisation of media power is formulated and tested. A book both for comic enthusiasts and for media analysts." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1.
