Taking Comics Seriously

I was featured today in the news section of City University London’s web site.

The piece is titled “Taking Comics Seriously”.

I am interviewed about my work,  The Comics Grid and about how comics scholarship can benefit the academic community.

The interview is illustrated with a page from “Writing about Comics and Copyright” by Ronan Deazley and Jason Mathis (RCUK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy, 2013), which features The Comics Grid as an example of good practice in comic art citation and attribution.With thanks to John Stevenson at City University London.
