Feminism and World-building in Monstress
An analysis of Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda’s Monstress (or the first handful of issues at least) and how they build a world that seems to be very female-dominated, and what that means for gender relations within the comic. Are strong female characters in a world that is predominantly made up of women still good role models, or are they less effective without the men to act as a contrast? Is Maika a good feminist role model, or at least a good realistic female character?
The Comics Code Authority: How censorship has affected the history of American comics
How has the Comics Code Authority impacted the development of American comics? Despite the fact that this is no longer a concern in the industry, does the history of having that organization and the way it affected the medium still show in comics published today? Maybe a comparison with European comics would be helpful here.
