Late Twentieth-Century Science Fiction: Multimedia, Visual Science Fiction and Others

Part of the Palgrave Histories of Literature book series (Palgrave Histories of Literature)


Comics, and especially superhero comics, have — as we have seen — been a tremendously important aspect of later twentieth-century SF. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s a new sophistication entered into the world of Anglophone comics. In addition to the traditional form of magazine format comics, there came on the market a new mode known as ‘graphic novels’, usually issued in a series of part-formats but later bound as a single volume.
