Summary Heroes and superheroes provides insight into more than 130 of the most popular and studied graphic novels. These essays look beyond the pop culture aspects of the medium to show the wide range of literary themes and artistic styles used to convey beliefs and conflicts, some harking back to ancient times. They challenge the researcher to see beyond the panels of a comic book, and show readers how the themes of ancient literary tradition are still alive in the literature of graphic novels.
