This book examines the ways in which individual moments of violence develop, and are presented, in comics and graphic novels. It raises questions about depiction and the act of showing violence, but it also considers the ways in which violence can affect those involved over the long term. The impact of gender on violence, as well as the nature of sexual violence, are both considered here. Contributors discuss the ways in which violent acts can be rendered palatable (for example through humour) but also how they can create enormous trauma and long lasting repercussions for both perpetrators and victims. Together with Contexts of Violence in Comics, it offers a nuanced examination of the ways in which violence in comics is presented in different texts, genres, cultures and contexts.

NEW YORK TIMES best-selling series! Stories Are the Only Thing Worth Dying For Tom Taylor has spent his entire life as a hostage to his father’s literary legacy. Wilson Taylor’s wildly successful 13-volume series chronicling the adventures of a bespectacled boy wizard named Tommy Taylor made him the most popular author on Earth-and destroyed his son’s future. On the day that the 13th title was published, Wilson vanished, leaving young Tom alone beneath the shadow of his famous namesake. Years later, Tom is still struggling to build an identity independent of his magical doppelgänger when disturbing new questions about his childhood suddenly arise. These revelations cast doubt upon his heritage, his memories-his very existence. Is it possible that nothing of his own past is actually true? That he is merely his father’s imaginary character somehow brought to life? Desperate to disprove this horrifying idea, Tom embarks on an epic journey that takes him and a strangely improbable group of companions around the world and deep into the realms of fiction-all while being hunted relentlessly by an ancient and sinister power determined to bring his story to a premature end. Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ masterpiece of metatextual storytelling is presented here for the first time in six definitive hardcover volumes. THE UNWRITTEN: THE DELUXE EDITION BOOK ONE collects issues #1-12 of the acclaimed Vertigo series and features a special behind-the-scenes section from Gross, Carey and cover artist Yuko Shimizu, as well as a new introduction by series editor Pornsak Pichetshote.
