Gothic In Comics & Graphic Novels

Julia Round
Various
This book explores the connections between comics and Gothic from four different angles: historical, formal, cultural and textual. It identifies structures, styles and themes drawn from literary gothic traditions and discusses their presence in British and American comics today, with particular attention to the DC Vertigo imprint. 
 
Part One offers an historical approach to British and American comics and Gothic, Part Two argues for an holistic model based around the symbols of the crypt, the spectre and the archive, and Part Three combines cultural and textual analysis, concluding with case studies of two of the most famous gothic archetypes in comics: the vampire and the zombie.
