Encapsulations: Critical Comics Studies – Editorial Board

University of Nebraska Press has launched its comics studies series with a long-needed focus: “By looking at understudied and overlooked texts, artists, and publishers, Encapsulations facilitates a move away from the same “big” and oft-examined texts. Instead the series uses more diverse case studies to explore new and existing critical theories in tune with an interdisciplinary, intersectional, and global approach to comics scholarship.”

I am so happy, honored, and enthusiastic that I can be on the editorial board of this series. Send us manuscripts! More info at the homepage of the press.

My review of Simon Grennan’s A Theory of Narrative Drawing is out in INKS

To reveiw Simon’s Grennan book has been my greatest accomplishment recently. It is a book that you either put away instantly or you immense yourself into it by taking notes and by constantly using google. I elaborate in detail why Simon’s model and demonstration of narrative drawing is indeed seminal, and I also say that the book demands maybe too much from the reader.

On a personal note, this book is important for me as my upcoming monograph is also about drawing, at least the first part, and I think that my view on drawing and Simon’s view on drawing are very close.

So here is the review:  muse.jhu.edu/article/698085
