THE DARK NIGHT RETURNS: THE CONTEMPORARY RESURGENCE OF CRIME COMICS. Terrence Wandtke. RIT Cary Graphic Arts Press, Rochester, 2015. 206 pp. ISBN 9781933360867 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Crime comic books in the 1950s caused controversy leading to their suppression and near extinction. Twenty-five years later, the dark hero, femme fatale, and bleak outlook of crime story comic books are even more striking and subversive. Terrence Wandtke traces the history of crime comics from their beginnings to the current resurgence and analyzes the cultural forces that give rise to influential works like Frank Miller_s Sin City, Brian Azzarello's 100 Bullets, and Ed Brubaker's Criminal. RIT Press is pleased to announce The Dark Night Returns as the third book published in its Comics Studies Monograph Series. The series editor is Dr. Gary Hoppenstand, Professor of English at Michigan State University.
