About the Author

Shawna Kidman is Assistant Professor of Communication at the University of California, San Diego.

Reviews

"The field needs studies like this, and it needs academics like Kidman who take on the sometimes unglamorous task of exposing the frames - the structures and infrastructures - within which, and between which, the colourful figures of comics and screen so fluidly move."
--Times Higher Education
"Comic Books Incorporated chronicles the rise of the comic book business by documenting its emergence as a cultural product. Highlighting the transmedia infrastructures that made comic books possible, Kidman discusses comic books and their history as a medium, how comic books connect to politics and society, and the rise of comic book fan culture . . . Highly recommended."--Choice
