The ninth release in CREATe’s Working Paper Series is now available for download. Writing About Comics and Copyright by Ronan Deazley and Jason Mathis explores, with the aid of beautiful comic illustrations, the challenges faced by scholars when seeking to write about visual work.

And what can be copied lawfully from a comic for the purpose of criticism and review?
