This special edited collection responds to the increasing interest in comics generated by readers and scholars in the last decade. From cartoons to graphic novels to manga—the variety of comics in combination with an awareness of their expressive potential has generated robust, critical conversations about how these forms work and contribute to our social, cultural, and political understanding.

‘Living Cities: Tropical Imaginaries’ reminds us that urban environments are both created and creative spaces. This Call for Papers is concerned with the peopled and lived experiences of cities and how these interact with built, natural and cultural environments. The CFP is interested in processes of tropical space and place-making, with an emphasis on key areas that make up lived cities in the tropics: creative economies, cultural and natural landscapes, aesthetics, urban myths and story making, sustainable practices, heritage, everyday life, community practices and liminal spaces.
