French Comics in America and American Comics in France

NEW YORK, NY – Pace University Press is proud to announce the release of The Journal of Comics and Culture, Volume 5.

“From Marvel to Strange. Publishing Marvel Comics in France (1969-1996): Between Importation and Autonomy” by Jean- Matthieu Méon discusses how the de-Americanization of these comics was a young historian’s Indiana Jones-like foray into popular culture.
