520    "Contributions by Eric Bain-Selbo, Jeremy Barris, Maria 
       Botero, Manuel "Mandel" Cabrera Jr., David J. Leichter, 
       Ian MacRae, Alfonso Muñoz-Corcuera, Corry Shores, and 
       Jarkko S. Tuusvuori In a follow-up to Comics as Philosophy,
       international contributors address two questions: Which 
       philosophical insights, concepts, and tools can shed light
       on the graphic novel? And how can the graphic novel cast 
       light on the concerns of philosophy? Each contributor 
       ponders a well-known graphic novel to illuminate ways in 
       which philosophy can untangle particular combinations of 
       image and written word for deeper understanding. Jeff 
       McLaughlin collects a range of essays to examine notable 
       graphic novels within the framework posited by these two 
       questions. One essay discusses how a philosopher 
       discovered that the panels in Jeff Lemire's Essex County 
       do not just replicate a philosophical argument, but they 
       actually give evidence to an argument that could not have 
       existed otherwise. Another essay reveals how Chris Ware's 
       manipulation of the medium demonstrates an important sense
       of time and experience. Still another describes why Maus 
       tends to be more profound than later works that address 
       the Holocaust because of, not in spite of, the fact that 
       the characters are cartoon animals rather than human. 
       Other works contemplated include Will Eisner's A Contract 
       with God, Alan Moore and David Lloyd's V for Vendetta, 
       Alison Bechdel's Fun Home, and Joe Sacco's Footnotes in 
       Gaza. Mainly, each essay, contributor, graphic novelist, 
       and artist are all doing the same thing: trying to tell us
       how the world is--at least from their point of view."--
