In common superhero mythos, unearthly, other-than-human, or more-than-human figures use their many extraordinary abilities to restore order, do battle with evil, uphold justice, and protect the innocent. Acting as guardians, protectors and defenders of Earth and its people, these courageous figures have long captured both our attention and imagination. However, with the rise of several notable media franchises, superheroes have become a ubiquitous part of our present popular cultural moment.

In this premiere print and online edition of Panic at the Discourse: An Interdisciplinary Journal, the editors invite submissions on topics including, but not limited to:

Teaching Graphic Narratives

Graphic narratives offer a wide variety of doubles and doppelgängers. Secret superhero identities and Gothic doubles create unique possibilities for exploring the self, power, perception, and the potential for other realities, while graphic narrative adaptations of a literary work highlight other ways of seeing and interacting with a text. Graphic narratives encompass worlds beyond fiction as well, with graphic memoirs and textbooks in a wide range of fields from rhetoric to literary theory, history, and science.
