Reviews

"The scholars in this book powerfully state that equality is not about changing 'comic book' colors but dismantling a racial ideology that has penetrated the core of American nationalism, industry, and culture." --Enrique Garcรญa author of The Hernandez Brothers: Love, Rockets, and Alternative Comics
"Unstable Masks should be read cover to cover. In addition to bringing together some extremely strong essays on comic book superheroes, the collection works well to depict the dangers inherent within our predominantly white cultural constructions of heroism." --Terrence Wandtke author of The Dark Night Returns: The Resurgence of Crime Comics
