The Supervillain Reader

A. G. Holdier

University Press of Mississippi

If you are interested in supervillains – or, for that matter, their wretched, do-good counterparts, the superheroes – then The Supervillain Readeris for you. Bringing together essays related to film, history, literature, and contemporary comics, The Supervillain Reader takes an interdisciplinary, multi-media approach to examining the deep history and current status of the supervillain. From witches, Darth Vader, and Voldemort, to The Kingpin, Cobra, and Bizarro, the evolution of the bad guy is an exciting, often surprising one, and the articles collected here – some new, some classics in the field – engage with the trope’s most pressing and central issues and offer the best possible starting point for supervillain studies.
