The Routledge Companion to Gender and Sexuality in Comic Book Studies is a comprehensive, global and interdisciplinary examination of the essential relationship between Gender, Sexuality, Comics and Graphic Novels.

A diverse range of international and interdisciplinary scholars take a closer look at how gender and sexuality have been essential in the evolution of comics, and how gender and sexuality in comics demand that we re-frame and re-view comics history. Essays cover a wide array of intersectional topics including Queer Underground and Alternative comics, Feminist Autobiography, Re-drawing disability, Latina testimony, and re-evaluating the critical whiteness and masculinity of superheroes in this first truly global reference text to gender and sexuality in comics.

Comics have always been an important place for the radical exploration of feminist and non-binary sexualities and identities, and the growth of non-normative comic book traditions as a field of inquiry makes this an essential text for upper level undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers studying Comics Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Literary Studies and Cultural Studies
