Emily Rauber Rodriguez (University of Southern California) uses the Star Wars: Shattered Empire miniseries as a case study of how licensed comics negotiate a curious transmedia space between adaptation, sequel, and promotion. Jeremiah Massengale (University of the Cumberlands) uses letters from readers to analyze the impact of a nine-day storyline about death and loss in the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip. Julia Round (Bournemouth University) uses the letters pages in Misty comic books to demonstrate how the comic, employing the dominant discourses of the horror genre, supported creativity, diversity, and community within the readership.
