Graphic Justice: Intersections of Comics and Law

Graphic Justice: Intersections of Comics and Law - Available Now

Crimcast is delighted to share the news that a new volume devoted to crime and criminal justice is now available!  This edited volume compiles the work of a core group of scholars who are working at the intersection of graphic novels and depictions of justice, furthering the project of Comic Book Crime: Truth, Justice, and the American Way.  The international array of scholars tackle such issues as the death penalty, biomedicine, vigilantism, restorative justice, and human rights violations through such series as Watchmen, Judge Dredd, Justice League, Batman, and 100 Bullets.

Establishing the medium of graphic fiction as a critical resource for interdisciplinary legal studies, this collection is the first to address the intersection of comics and law. Whether in their representations of lawyers, their treatment justice, law and social order, or their investment in the protection of the innocent and the punishment of guilty, graphic fiction explores human life in all its social, moral and legal complexity. In the context of a now well-established interest in cultural legal studies, this book showcases the critical potential of comics and graphic fiction as a resource for nterdisciplinary legal studies and legal theory.
