"A refreshing, resourceful investigation of American comics since the Vietnam War, Comics, Trauma, and the New Art of War charts the form's representational possibilities across a diverse expanse of genres, styles, and issues. Deftly braiding methodologies--classic psychoanalysis, contemporary trauma theory, art history--Earle both broadens and refines our understanding of the comics medium and its innovative practitioners." --Hillary L. Chute, author of Disaster Drawn: Visual Witness, Comics, and Documentary Form
