  • Rage against the Machine: Buffering, Noise, and Perpetual Anxiety in the
           Age of Connected Viewing
    • Abstract: It is a ubiquitous image that is rarely explored: a never-ending, loopic, perpetual circle that occasionally bears the words “loading” or “buffering” beneath it. This GIF informs us that the streamed world in which we were immersed only seconds earlier has now been put on hold while the data is being sent from one server to the next. We know not what to do, so we simply wait, putting our trust in the most literal incarnation of deus ex machina. The god, we are hoping, will come from the machine. In fact, in these brief moments of helplessness the god is the machine: an omnipotent, invisible, and unknowable entity whose logic and materiality are not entirely clear to us. Despite this abstraction—and perhaps ... Read More

  • La jetée in Historical Time: Torture, Visuality, Displacement
    • Abstract: Modernity is, in fact, a European phenomenon but one constituted in a dialectical relation with a non-European alterity. For the most crucial fact about pain is its presentness and the most crucial fact about torture is that it is happening. Since its release in 1962, Chris Marker’s La jetée (The Jetty) has emerged as one of the foundational texts of postwar European cinema. Film scholars consistently harness the Left Bank director’s short ciné-roman to make both historical claims about the transition from cinematic classicism to cinematic modernism and theoretical claims about the filmed image’s relation to cinematic time. Yet this predominantly formal emphasis on Marker’s play with ... Read More

  • A New Vision: J. J. Abrams, Star Trek, and Promotional Authorship
    • Abstract: September 4, 1986, was a historic day in Hollywood. For the first time, a television writer was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (almost twenty years after the first fictional character, Mickey Mouse, received the honor). The writer in question was Gene Roddenberry, largely credited with the creation of the Star Trek franchise, and the tribute paid him constituted an early critical moment for attitudes toward authorship in television in particular and in media industries at large. Auteur theory, developed in the pages of Cahiers du cinéma some thirty years earlier and migrating to the United States mainly through the work of Andrew Sarris, was in the mid-1980s already an important discourse ...

  • Solving the Day-Care Crisis, One Episode at a Time: Family Sitcoms and
           Privatized Child Care in the 1980s
    • Abstract: “Family values” were a US cultural obsession during the 1980s and continue to frame many contemporary understandings of the decade. Helping to facilitate discussions of a return to the traditional family in the 1980s, a large number of family situation comedies replaced the prominent workplace sitcoms of the previous decade, although they often strayed from the nuclear-family form. Many 1980s programs incorporated workplace issues, especially surrounding the need for easily available and affordable child care. The need for day care in the United States in the 1980s, along with the Reagan administration’s refusal to support comprehensive day-care policies, contributed to a media frenzy that proposed numerous ...

  • From Zero to Hero: The CIA and Hollywood Today
    • Abstract: Two forty-million-dollar movies celebrating the real-life efforts of the Central Intelligence Agency competed for Oscars in early 2013. Zero Dark Thirty (Kathryn Bigelow, 2012) focused on the agency’s dogged, ten-year hunt for the leader of al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden. Argo (Ben Affleck, 2012) dramatized the CIA’s “exfiltration” of six American embassy officials during the 1979–1981 Iranian hostage crisis. While Argo eventually captured the headlines on Oscar night by winning the Academy Award for Best Picture, the fact that two of the year’s most prestigious movies championed US intelligence suggests that Hollywood views the CIA more positively now than it has at any other stage in the agency’s recent ...

  • Beyond Watchmen
    • Abstract: Watchmen, the twelve-part DC Comics series by writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons, celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2016. Watchmen’s underlying reassessment of the morality and politics inherent in superhero storytelling rewrote what was possible in comic books. If comics have gained any increasing respectability (academic or otherwise) over the past three decades, then Watchmen is an important part of this shift. It is a breakthrough text, not only for the comic-book industry and comics scholarship but also as a case study of how a comic becomes translated across multiple media forms. This In Focus seeks to examine Watchmen’s creative legacy and its significance as a cross-media franchise and ... Read More

  • World-Building in Watchmen
    • Abstract: The graphic novel Watchmen (twelve issues, 1986–1987), by writer Alan Moore, illustrator Dave Gibbons, and colorist John Higgins, demonstrates the possibilities that comics offer for world-building while at the same time making full use of the peculiarities of the medium. While the film adaptation of Watchmen required changes to the original, including some losses, the further adaptation of the film to home-video formats was able to restore some of those losses, because of the ways in which home video is better able to emulate the original comics. Watchmen features a world that is an alternate version of the United States in 1985 and that departs from the Primary World (the real world) when ... Read More

  • The Continuing Adventures of the “Inherently Unfilmable” Book: Zack
           Snyder’s Watchmen
    • Abstract: “More regurgitated worms” were the words Alan Moore used to describe Zack Snyder’s 2009 film adaptation of Watchmen.1 Tempting as it may be to dismiss Moore’s vitriol as hyperbolic egotism, it is difficult to overstate the importance of the 1986 limited series that he coauthored with Dave Gibbons. Although its import for both comics and literature has been widely documented, Watchmen’s relationship to cinema has received comparatively less attention.2 Thus, Snyder’s film, and its relation to its graphic hypotext, requires further attention in order to appreciate what Watchmen means to the respective fields of adaptation, contemporary cinema, and comics studies. Rather than reclaim Snyder’s Watchmen as an ... Read More

  • “Watched any good books lately?”: The Formal Failure of
           the Watchmen Motion Comic
    • Abstract: In an interview, the comic-book writer Mark Waid described the new media phenomenon of motion comics—a hybrid of limited animation and comics—as being “unfortunate.”1 Similarly, when asked for his opinion, the comic-book writer, artist, and scholar Scott McCloud remarked that the medium was “a sad, temporary, abomination.”2 Indeed, in the seven years that have elapsed since the release of one of the most noteworthy of motion comics—Watchmen (Zack Snyder, 2008)—the medium has evolved out of its former existence and into tablet-friendly applications and “motion books.” In this space, I would like to consider the formal attributes of the motion comic and how it does and does not remediate aspects of its two ...

  • “Who makes the world?”: Before Watchmen, Nostalgia, and
           Franchising
    • Abstract: In the field of comics studies, there are relatively few texts considered canonical, particularly for superhero comics. Perhaps more than any other, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s 1986–1987 series Watchmen stands in for the whole of the medium in classrooms and critics’ lists. Watchmen’s appeal as an object of analysis is clear: as a self-contained story, it is easier to purchase and to read than many other superhero comics, whose story lines can stretch over years and are not always collected into neat volumes; it has also garnered critical acclaim to a degree that few other comics have. On the front cover of the trade paperback reprint of the series, DC touts Watchmen’s status as “one of Time Magazine’s 100 ... Read More

  • Watchmen from the Point of View of Cinema and Media Study
    • Abstract: For thinking about medium specificity and contrast or comparisons among the practices of contemporary popular and media culture, I have personally found most productive the writings on radio music that Theodor Adorno crafted in American exile in the late 1930s and early 1940s and that were edited into a book, Current of Music, published in English in 2008.1 Most of the material derived from Adorno’s efforts as head of the Music Division of the Princeton Radio Research Project, which a number of scholars have considered a key early moment in the history of communication research. Wanting to understand what modern media of mass reproduction did to live performance—especially in works from that European ... Read More

  • Considering Watchmen: Poetics, Property, Politics by Andrew Hoberek
           (review)
    • Abstract: One consequence of the relatively late emergence of comics studies as an academic field is that we have a very long to-do list. There are innumerable works, creators, and topics that have yet to be the subject of any sustained scholarly attention, simply because comics and graphic novels (even in a narrow definition) were being produced for the better part of a century before there were professional “comics scholars” to study them. Take, for example, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s Watchmen, originally published as a twelve-issue limited series by DC Comics beginning in 1986, and first collected into its more familiar single-volume edition in 1987.1 It is inarguably one of the comics world’s most celebrated ...

  • The Blacker the Ink: Constructions of Black Identity in Comics and
           Sequential Art ed. by Frances Gateward, John Jennings (review)
    • Abstract: Embedded in the rise of comics studies has been an increased attentiveness to underground, alternative, and independent comics. In fact, one could argue that it is precisely because of alternative voices—cartoonists’ and scholars’ alike—that the respective sociocultural statuses of comics and comics studies have shifted. Alongside plotting the waxing and waning of print runs and charting the behind-the-scenes politics and dynamics of major publishing companies, scholars have been keenly interested in how cartoonists adopt, adapt, challenge, and expand on existing conventions to theorize notions of identity. In particular, there has been a steady increase in journal articles, monographs, and anthologies that ... Read More

  • Hellboy’s World: Comics and Monsters on the Margins by Scott
           Bukatman (review)
    • Abstract: Before settling in to read Scott Bukatman’s Hellboy’s World: Comics and Monsters on the Margins, I took time—perhaps a little too much time—to admire the glorious, and gloriously reproduced, images contained within it. And, having now read the book, I don’t think Scott Bukatman would have minded that digression at all. Hellboy’s World is a lovely object. The soft-touch matte cover feels luxurious in the hand, much like actual Hellboy trades. Its roughly A5 pamphlet size makes it easy to hold, and it is crammed with full-color images, which often take up double-page spreads. Congratulations to the editorial folks at the University of California Press who supported the inclusion of so many images ... Read More

  • The Origins of Comics from William Hogarth to Winsor McCay by Thierry
           Smolderen (review)
    • Abstract: Histories of the comics often stay within a national framework, situating an artist or comic strip in the visual or literary traditions of a particular country. Thierry Smolderen’s The Origins of Comics from William Hogarth to Winsor McCay constructs the development of comic art within a broader cultural and linguistic framework that connects work done in England, France, Germany, and the United States.1 He explores the contributions of artists who are well known to historians of the medium, such as William Hogarth, as well as those who are discussed less often, such as Rodolphe Töpffer and Arthur Burdett Frost. In the process Smolderen brings to light the creative and imaginative work that has helped ... Read More

  • Unflattening by Nick Sousanis (review)
    • Abstract: It’s been five years since I wrote “The State of Comics Scholarship: Comics Studies and Disciplinarity” for International Journal of Comic Art.1 At the time, comics studies was barely a blip on most people’s scholarly radar. Only two scholarly journals had been in print for more than a year: International Journal of Comic Art—affectionately referred to by those few in the know as IJoCA—and the open-access journal ImageTexT. Only one university press published work on comics: the University Press of Mississippi. Virtually no faculty lines existed, or courses in comics studies, and for those brave enough or foolish enough to nevertheless pursue work on comics, there was little institutional support or ...
