Professor Jane Tolmie, Queen's University

Lynda Barry: Seriously Multitalented is a proposed volume in the new series Critical Approaches to Comics Artists at the University Press of Mississippi. Hillary Chute correctly labels Barry, now author of 18 books, as "one of America's seriously multitalented artists" (57, Outside the Box); Susan E. Kirtley describes her work as "uncompromising and multifaceted" (188, Lynda Barry: Girlhood Through the Looking Glass). This collection of original essays aims to capture the range and depth of Barry's work, from the artistic and the political to the pedagogical.

Italo Calvino once asked, "Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?" And while this question maintains its relevance, it is about time we turn our attention away from the individual, the "we," and ask this question of the texts we produce and the environments in which they are produced.

Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen claims that whereas humans once saw themselves as "rebels against a superpower we call 'Nature,'" now "we are taking control of Nature's realm, from climate to DNA. We humans are becoming the dominant force for change on Earth."
