America and Britain: Dennis the Menace (s)
- 213 Downloads
This chapter compares the British and American Dennis the Menace comic strips arguing that despite so many similarities and a common genre the different history of the form in those countries led to two very different comics. These two comics are more distinct from each other than, for instance, Skippy and Ginger Meggs. Yet, in both comics, race is mostly absent from the content, and yet present by its very absence.
