Daniel Amrhein discovered the rich world of comics at the tender age of 7, reveling in the heroic feats of superheroes with the unabashed enthusiasm of youth. His appreciation of the medium has matured over the years, yet he has remained an avid fan. Viewing sequential art as “the most pure marriage of visual art and story-telling created to date,” Daniel combines his art historical background and love of the medium to provide a unique perspective in the academic discussion of comics.

    I saw you present your superhero census at Dragon Con- by far one of the best presentations of the Con! I’m glad to have found your blog and look forward to seeing you and that fabulous facial hair of yours this year!

    Thanks and welcome to the blog! I’m glad you enjoyed the presentation. I’ve already begun work on my submission for this year. Hopefully I’ll see you there.

    I’ve been reading comics in one form or another for over 40 years. I also worked in a university English department in the 90s, so I know (unfortunately) about every PoMo argument there is. At first I thought this was going to be just another blog aimed at deconstructing comics to fit some cultural shriek fit. But so far your views aren’t the strident, biased, and incomprehensible ones I’m used to, so I’ll check your page out when I can.
