Magic as MetaphorMagic as Metaphor in Anime: A Critical Study

Since its inception as an art form, anime has engaged with themes, symbols and narrative strategies drawn from the realm of magic. In recent years, the medium has increasingly turned to magic specifically as a metaphor for a wide range of cultural, philosophical and psychological concerns.

This book first examines a range of Eastern and Western approaches to magic in anime, addressing magical thinking as an overarching concept which unites numerous titles despite their generic and tonal diversity. It then explores the collusion of anime and magic with reference to specific topics. A close study of cardinal titles is complemented by allusions to ancillary productions in order to situate the medium’s fascination with magic within an appropriately broad historical context.

Pick of the WeekReading The Amazing Spider-Man Volume One
by MWS Media

Take a fun, critical, issue-by-issue tour of the first twelve issues of The Amazing Spider-Man, the comicbook that launched one of the most enduring characters in modern mythology. Along the way, learn valuable lessons about storytelling, storyworlds, and episodic fiction that will enhance the way you look at stories in all media… and change your perspective whether you’re a writer, a comic book fan, or both! The first issue of The Amazing Spider-Man comic book hit news stands in December of 1962.

A half-century later, Spider-Man is a cultural icon and a central figure in the pantheon of modern mythological figures. Spider-Man, in all his incarnations, is also one of the most enduring—and valuable—fictional characters ever created. What’s… well, amazing… is that nearly every persistent element in the storyworld of The Amazing Spider-Man was established in the first twelve issues of the original comicbook!

In Reading The Amazing Spider-Man Volume One, the author of the popular, comicbook-flavored Sovereign Era storyworld examines the roots of the Spider-Man franchise with a critical (but light-hearted) review of each story in the first twelve issues while exploring the many lessons to be found in those first issues for writers and storytellers of all kinds interested in developing an enduring storyworld and creative franchise. Along the way, you’ll have a lot of fun reading The Amazing Spider-Man!

Investigating HeroesInvestigating Heroes: Essays on Truth, Justice and Quality TV

Premiering in September of 2006, the weekly NBC television series Heroes was an immediate commercial and critical hit, lasting four successful seasons. Heroes follows a group of interrelated characters who discover they have superhuman powers, with each successive episode exploring how these people react to and utilize their powers for good or for evil.

This collection of essays explores a variety of issues surrounding Heroes, examining the series’ content, marketing and reception. Also investigated is the show’s fusion of “cult” and mainstream elements of television, analyzing its ability to combine so-called lowbrow elements (comic books and superheroes) with a high-quality television form prizing such factors as moral ambiguity and depth of characterization–and what this blending process suggests about the current hybrid state of genre television, and about the medium as a whole.
