The entirety of my essay, “The Spanish Civil War, Cartooning, and the Cultural Imagination,” is available now at The Comics Journal website:
In the course of the review I discuss comics about the war, including No Pasaran!, The Black Order Brigade, and select issues of Wolverine. But I also discuss the use of propaganda posters, Robert Capa’s photographs, novels like The Fallen Sparrow and For Whom the Bell Tolls, and the movies Casablanca and Pan’s Labyrinth — plus, of course Picasso’s Guernica and Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia.
Of all the things I’ve written about comics, I think that this is my best work.
Meanwhile, I’ve also written a short review of the Comics Book Legal Defense Fund’s Liberty Comics.
You can see that at Verbicide Magazine.
