GOTHIC FOR GIRLS MISTY & BRITISH COMICS SC
UNIVERSITY PRESS OF MISSISSIPP
(W) Julia Round (A) Pat Mills, Malcolm Shaw, John Armstrong
Fans still remember and love the British girls' comic Misty
for its bold visuals and narrative complexities. Yet its unique history has drawn little critical attention. In the first book on this topic, Round closely analyzes Misty's content, including its creation and production, its cultural and historical context, key influences, and the comic itself. Largely based on Round's own archival research of this comic and richly illustrated with previously unpublished photos, scripts, and letters, this book uses Misty as a lens to explore the use of Gothic themes and symbols in girls' comics and other media.
