I wrote an undergraduate Senior Thesis on Superman that’s actually been cited and bibliographied a couple of times. It’s lodged online here:

Oh, wow. How am I just seeing this.
Definitely interested in reading academic works on the ideas and concepts behind superhero characters.
Anyone do any write-up’s on villains?

Dear Ms. Leitner,
An enjoyable introduction to the subject. It’s titled Science Fair. What was the manner of presentation? Online only or some kind of hard copy, like on poster board?
Keep reading and writing. My college thesis on Superman is in the same DCU chain as your paper.
Best,
Mike Mautner

Good to see someone citing Scott McCloud. His “Understanding Comics” should be required reading😁

Good essay!

Interesting that Scott’s three volumes are unavailable at Kindle and Nook.

Luckily I have the print versions.

His Understanding Comics is sited as a reference in many areas, Inc.using film, interface design and systems development

A person not knowing anything about comics would know a lot more after reading your essay. Accurate as is, but not sequential in terms of history.

Your Supergirl cover is very impressive.

It Reminds me somewhat of the very good Graphic Novel, Being Super, which has Kara going to high school, being on the farm, living with her parents, running track, getting alien acne, and just being with her two best friends, for the majority of pages.

Just like other girls, but one who can lift her father’s tractor with one hand.

The woman who illustrated the story is Noelle Jones, who currently writes and draws Catwoman.

The author is award winning Marino Tamaki
