With Great Power Comes Great Pedagogy

Johnathan Flowers

University Press of Mississippi

In this chapter, Jonathan Flowers offers an important critique of some of the foundational tenets of comics studies and questions the epistemological grounding on which our pedagogies stand. By exploring how Scott McCloud’s work has shaped our field, Flowers deftly illustrates that this field is constantly moving and evokes a call for new voices and pedagogies. He does this through interlinking power and visibility with politics and race within the field of comics studies.

Keywords:   Scott McCloud, critical theory, race, comics studies
