Books Description:

The Joker is dead. There is no doubt about that. But whether Batman finally snapped his scrawny neck or some other sinister force in Gotham City did the deed is still a mystery. Problem is, Batman can't remember... and the more he digs into this labyrinthian case, the more his mind starts to doubt everything he's uncovering. So who better to set him straight than... John Constantine? Problem with that is as much as John loves a good mystery, he loves messing with people's heads even more. So with John's "help," the pair will delve into the sordid underbelly of Gotham as they race toward the mind-blowing truth of who murdered The Joker. BATMAN: DAMNED is a supernatural horror story told by two of comics' greatest modern creators-a visceral thrill-ride that proudly puts the "black" in BLACK LABEL.

Books Description:

Comic books and superhero stories mirror essential societal values and beliefs. We can be Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Ham, Black Panther or Rocket Raccoon through our everyday choices. We can't fly, fix hyper drives or hear human heartbeats a mile away, but we can think about what Matt Murdock would do in a conflict, how Superman would respond to natural disasters and how Captain America would handle humanitarian crises. This book analyzes the impact of dozens of comics by examining the noble personalities, traits and actions of the main characters. Chapters detail how superheroes, comic books and other pop culture phenomena offer more than pure entertainment, and how we can better model ourselves after our favorite heroes. Through our good deeds, quick thinking and positive choices, we can become more like superheroes than we ever imagined.

Books Description:

Découvrez cette analyse de Batman, le premier super-héros humain qui s'élève au niveau des dieux et qui marquera une nouvelle génération de héros. Batman est le plus intéressant des super-héros. Il ne s’agit pas, en disant cela, de prendre position dans la guerre éternelle opposant les fanatiques de Marvel à ceux de DC Comics ni de comparer sa musculature à celle de Superman, mais de souligner tout ce qu’il synthétise en termes de représentations, d’enjeux, d’histoire éditoriale des super-héros, alors même qu’il occupe une place singulière dans le panthéon de cette mythologie moderne. Il est donc temps de scruter les visages de la chauve-souris sous le masque, de mettre en lumière le dark knight, de se demander : « Qui est Batman ? » Analyser Batman, c'est également analyser quatre-vingt ans d'histoire éditoriale, sociale et politique, ainsi que les représentations les plus contradictoires : du terroriste et du fascite au résistant et à l'ultime défenseur d'un idéal démocratique, du milliardaire au héros christique... Siegfried Würtz se lance dans cette aventure et décrypte les symboles incarnés par la chauve-souris. EXTRAIT Dès leur création, les comic books sont méprisés : leur médiocre qualité matérielle, leur bas prix, la concision et la platitude de leurs histoires, imagées de surcroît, en faisaient un art fondamentalement populaire, réservé à un lectorat désargenté et inculte. Leur succès grandissant inquiète donc ceux qui, effrayés que cette « sous-littérature » n’éloigne les enfants des vrais livres, craignent que leur violence ne les contamine - un discours que l’on connaît bien aujourd’hui encore, se rapportant désormais aux manga, aux dessins animés japonais ou aux jeux vidéo. Si l’on croit constater une montée de la délinquance, elle ne peut certainement pas venir des activités florissantes de la mafia, du climat antisémite, homophobe, anti-japonais, anti-rouge qui règne dans la société, de la ségrégation raciale, de la guerre en Europe puis du retour des soldats, victorieux, mais témoignant des horreurs du nazisme ! Non, seuls des clowns costumés faisant régner la loi en donnant d’assez inoffensifs coups de poing, dans une forme de divertissement ravissant l’imaginaire enfantin, peuvent être à l’origine de toute la violence du monde ! À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Siegfried Würtz est chercheur en littérature comparée et prépare une thèse intitulée Dieu est fasciste. Enjeux politiques, moraux et religieux de la représentation du lien entre pouvoir et responsabilité dans le comics états-unien de super-héros omnipotents. Il consacre conférences et articles à ses objets d’étude et passions (l’art séquentiel, le cinéma, le jeu vidéo et de société), dans des revues et événements universitaires ou dans des festivals et sur des blogs (Vonguru, Comics have the power, Superpouvoir, etc.).

Books Description:

Along with Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman, the Joker stands out as one of the most recognizable comics characters in popular culture. While there has been a great deal of scholarly attention on superheroes, very little has been done to understand supervillains. This is the first academic work to provide a comprehensive study of this villain, illustrating why the Joker appears so relevant to audiences today. Batman’s foe has cropped up in thousands of comics, numerous animated series, and three major blockbuster feature films since 1966. Actually, the Joker debuted in DC comics Batman 1 (1940) as the typical gangster, but the character evolved steadily into one of the most ominous in the history of sequential art. Batman and the Joker almost seemed to define each other as opposites, hero and nemesis, in a kind of psychological duality. Scholars from a wide array of disciplines look at the Joker through the lens of feature films, video games, comics, politics, magic and mysticism, psychology, animation, television, performance studies, and philosophy. As the first volume that examines the Joker as complex cultural and cross-media phenomenon, this collection adds to our understanding of the role comic book and cinematic villains play in the world and the ways various media affect their interpretation. Connecting the Clown Prince of Crime to bodies of thought as divergent as Karl Marx and Friedrich Nietzsche, contributors demonstrate the frightening ways in which we get the monsters we need.
