Comic Books Incorporated tells the story of the US comic book business, reframing the history of the medium through an industrial and transmedial lens. Comic books wielded their influence from the margins and in-between spaces of the entertainment business for half a century before moving to the center of mainstream film and television production. This extraordinary history begins at the medium’s origin in the 1930s, when comics were a reviled, disorganized, and lowbrow mass medium, and surveys critical moments along the way—market crashes, corporate takeovers, upheavals in distribution, and financial transformations. Shawna Kidman concludes this revisionist history in the early 2000s, when Hollywood had fully incorporated comic book properties and strategies into its business models and transformed the medium into the heavily exploited, exceedingly corporate, and yet highly esteemed niche art form we know so well today.

This final work in John Lent's series of bibliographies on comic art gathers together an astounding array of citations on American comic books and comic strips. Included in this volume are citations regarding anthologies and reprints; criticism and reviews; exhibitions, festivals, and awards; scholarship and theory; and the business, artistic, cultural, legal, technical, and technological aspects of American comics. Author John Lent has used all manner of methods to gather the citations, searching library and online databases, contacting scholars and other professionals, attending conferences and festivals, and scanning hundreds of periodicals. He has gone to great length to categorize the citations in an easy-to-use, scholarly fashion, and in the process, has helped to establish the field of comic art as an important part of social science and humanities research. The ten volumes in this series, covering all regions of the world, constitute the largest printed bibliography of comic art in the world, and serve as the beacon guiding the burgeoning fields of animation, comics, and cartooning. They are the definitive works on comic art research, and are exhaustive in their inclusiveness, covering all types of publications (academic, trade, popular, fan, etc.) from all over the world. Also included in these books are citations to systematically-researched academic exercises, as well as more ephemeral sources such as fanzines, press articles, and fugitive materials (conference papers, unpublished documents, etc.), attesting to Lent's belief that all pieces of information are vital in a new field of study such as comic art.

Since at least 1939, when daily-strip caveman Alley Oop time-traveled to the Trojan War, comics have been drawing (on) material from Greek and Roman myth, literature and history. At times the connection is cosmetic-as perhaps with Wonder Woman's Amazonian heritage-and at times it is almost irrelevant-as with Hercules' starfaring adventures in the 1982 Marvel miniseries. But all of these make implicit or explicit claims about the place of classics in modern literary culture. Classics and Comics is the first book to explore the engagement of classics with the epitome of modern popular literature, the comic book. This volume collects sixteen articles, all specially commissioned for this volume, that look at how classical content is deployed in comics and reconfigured for a modern audience. It opens with a detailed historical introduction surveying the role of classical material in comics since the 1930s. Subsequent chapters cover a broad range of topics, including the incorporation of modern theories of myth into the creation and interpretation of comic books, the appropriation of characters from classical literature and myth, and the reconfiguration of motif into a modern literary medium. Among the well-known comics considered in the collection are Frank Miller's 300 and Sin City, DC Comics' Wonder Woman, Jack Kirby's The Eternals, Neil Gaiman's Sandman, and examples of Japanese manga. The volume also includes an original 12-page "comics-essay," drawn and written by Eisner Award-winning Eric Shanower, creator of the graphic novel series Age of Bronze.

This book a comprehensive index and concordance of Carl Barks' comic book work. From 1942 until his retirement in 1966, Carl Barks was the most important writer and artist of Donald Duck and related comic books, including Uncle Scrooge, as well as the creator of Uncle Scrooge and many of the best-loved characters in the Duck comic books. So beloved and important was Carl Barks' work that from 1983 to 1990, Another Rainbow Publishing, founded by Bruce Hamilton, published The Carl Barks Library in 30 deluxe hardcover volumes reprinting all of Barks' Disney comic book work and as much other Disney related drawings and art Barks was involved with as possible. In addition to comic book work, it includes paintings, storyboard and animation drawings, model sheets, and drawings for fans, among other things. The Complete Carl Barks Index has over 29,000 lines of data in the Index. The index, which was always intended to cover all of Barks' Disney comics as published in the original comic books and as reprinted, or in some cases first printed, in The Carl Barks Library, was also expanded to include Barks' non-Disney comics and also, later, Disney comics not included in The Carl Barks Library, and not even published until after The Carl Barks Library had been completed. There is even Barks comic book work first published after Barks' death, including work that has not yet been published in the USA or even in English. This has led to some additional material being added to the index as late as 2016. All of that is included in the Index. Information has also been included to make the Index useful even with other reprints in addition to the original comic books and the The Carl Barks Library. Each data entry includes reference to the original USA comic book publications with comic book title, issue, and story page numbers. It also includes reference to The Carl Barks Library publication including set, volume, and page reference, as well as submission dates, based on Carl Barks' personal work records. Just about any question you might ask about Carl Barks' work, if you can think of it, and it is included in Barks' opus, you can probably find it and all references to it. Want to find every depiction of a cigarette in Barks' comics or a listing of every half page display panel and other large sized panels? It's there. What really was the first appearance of the money bin or its precursors, or the worry room, or Gladstone's luck, every appearance of the Beagle Boys, all incarnations of Barks' pig villain characters, what stories have a camel in them, what Barney Bear and Benny Burro story was rewritten as an Uncle Scrooge story, what other Barks stories were rewritten years or decades later? Where does that huge panel of a money dam bursting with gazillions of dollars flowing forth appear? It's all there in the Index. There are also a dozen chapters of introduction, historical, and background material, topics of special interest, and a Foreword by Michael Barrier. There is also a SPECIAL EDITION version of this book that has 19 illustrations spread over 13 interior pages in two chapters in color instead of black and white. It has a price $25 higher due to the high price of print-on-demand color printing. There are no other interior differences between the two versions of the book. The price of the SPECIAL EDITION is by $59.95; the regular edition price is $34.95. There is also a 548 page LARGE PRINT INDEX EDITION priced at $39.95 in which the Index portion of the book is printed in 9-point type in a single column per page instead of double columns of 7-point type; the remainder of the book is identical to the regular 304 page edition.
