Customer Questions & Answers for
Westminster John Knox Press Holy Superheroes!: Exploring the Sacred in Comics, Graphic Novels, and Film (Revised and Expanded Edition)

Since ancient history, humans have created stories in an attempt to better understand the world around them. Thousands of years ago it was Zeus and Hercules. Now it's Superman, Batman, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four. In Holy Superheroes! (updated and expanded to include many recent comics and movies) you will discover how comic books - and the Hollywood adaptations they inspire - can influence our understanding of Good versus Evil, personal sacrifice, duty, and faith.

Comic books have become a twenty-first century mythology. In this book Pulitzer Prize nominated author Greg Garrett explores this mythology and extracts the profound truths that are revealed in the glossy pages, superhuman characters and fast-paced action. PLEASE NOTE: Some of the media discussed and/or suggested as recommended reading contain extremely graphic depictions of violence, brutality, sexual situations, profanity and blasphemy. These issues are neither displayed nor discussed at length in the text.
