Superman: Action Comics #1 and Gender Politics

I am happy to announce that an article of mine which explores gender politics in Superman’s début appearance in Action Comics #1 has just been published by The Comics Grid: Journal of Comics Scholarship.  The journal is a peer-reviewed academic forum in which various scholarly approaches to comic books are presented to the public and I am very honoured to be counted among its contributors.  As for this article, it explores how gender politics in America during the Great Depression were expressed in the first superhero comic – Superman: Action Comics #1.  To read the article please CLICK HERE.

To listen to my series of lectures on comic books and history, check out the American Studies and History Podcast page.  Listen to “Up, Up and Away: Action Comics #1 in the Great Depression and the Depression Recession (1938 and 2011)” which compares DC’s original superhero classic to its modern day remake.  Also of interest for DC fans is my brief “History of the Joker” which explores how Batman’s arch nemesis has evolved from his first appearance to his modern day incarnation.  Finally, Marvel fans have something to think about in “Captain America’s Racist Sidekick”, a lecture which explores the problematic character of Whitewash Jones and how racism in comics worked in the early years of the genre.
