EXTENDED DEADLINE
CALL FOR PAPERS: Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics Special Issue
Freaked and Othered Bodies in Comics

How do we define 'normal'? Quite literally it comes from the Latin norma meaning 'carpenter's square'. Straight. And 'abnormal'? That's from the Greek, anomalos, and the Latin abnormis, meaning 'monstrosity'. We leap cognitively, thanks to those boy-fucking, poison-guzzling, sheet-wearing Olympians right to 'monster.' Normal? Square. Abnormal? Monstrous."

— from the Eisner-award-winning and Harvey-award-rejecting comic, Sex Criminals (#12, Sept. 2015), by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky.

Borders are constructed to regulate the movement of people, resources, and information, as well as to structure and appraise different forms of knowledge. They can also be used to isolate the causes of adverse health effects, protect equitable standards, recognize different health needs, and preserve the right to self-determination and privacy.
