MA – Why Comics? Signing

Harvard Book Store welcomes Northeastern University professor and comics scholar Hillary Chute on Friday February 9, 2018 at 3:00 PM for a discussion of her latest book, WHY COMICS?: From Underground to Everywhere. This event is co-sponsored by the Newhouse Center for the Humanities at Wellesley College.

About Why Comics?
The massive impact that comics have had on our culture becomes more and more clear every day, from the critically acclaimed musical Fun Home, based on Alison Bechdel’s groundbreaking comic, to the dozens of superhero films hitting cinemas every year. What is it that makes comics so special? What can this unique art form do that others can’t?

In Why Comics?, comics scholar Hillary Chute reveals the history of comics, underground comics (or comix), and graphic novels, through deep thematic analysis, and fascinating portraits of the fearless men and women behind them. As Scott McCloud revealed the methods behind comics and the way they worked in his classic Understanding Comics, Chute will reveal the themes that Comics handle best, and how the form is uniquely equipped to explore them.
