Race and Gender in comics




Certain comics have come under fire for their insensitive depictions of different racial groups and/or women. Compare and contrast two (potentially) problematic representational trends. Some examples include Wonder Woman and Nelvana of the Northern Lights as female wartime superheroines; the use of racial caricatures in propaganda, comix, and contemporary political cartoons; or sexualized depictions of women in comix and superhero comics. How does the figure of the author (e.g. as a white person depicting people of colour; as a man depicting women, or vice versa) contribute to the comics’ politics?
