Comics Forum’s archives have expanded again today with the launch of a new section dedicated to our occasional public lecture series ‘Comics Forum presents…’. Now available is an MP3 from 2012’s event ‘Comics and Philosophy: From Maus to She Hulk‘.
‘Comics and Philosophy’ featured speakers Aaron Meskin and Roy Cook (editors of The Art of Comics: A Philosophical Approach). Meskin looked at the general relationships between the two fields, while Cook considered a case study, John Byrne’s She-Hulk comics, as a means for thinking about particular philosophical questions. The session ran for just under an hour.
You can download the MP3 below, or from the Comics and Philosophy archive page (where you can also download the event’s poster). All downloads are free.
