Patricia Ayala (University of Colima) explores how the landscape of comics reflects the author's inner world and the elements that comics creators use to pull readers into each frame of story. Melissa Archibald (California State University, Long Beach) argues that the artistic representation of Metropolis challenges the popular trope of American cities as places of depravity and hopelessness by conceptualizing Metropolis as a place of progress. Chris Murray (University of Dundee) sees commentary on American culture in the works of British pop artists and examines the relationship between their art and comics in terms of content, political critique, and graphic design.
