[UPDATE] The Counterpublics of Underground Comix: MLA 2016 Special Session

full name / name of organization: 
MLA/Margaret Galvan and Leah Misemer
contact email:

When underground comix emerged in America in the 1970s, they were connected with the counter culture movement and rife with anti-establishment content. These comics participated in and addressed counterpublics, which queer theorist Michael Warner defines as “formed by their conflict with the norms and contexts of their cultural environment.” Yet much of the scholarship of the underground comix movement has centered on straight white men located in San Francisco (e.g. R. Crumb, S. Clay Wilson).
