Georgiana Banita (University of Bamberg, Germany), Lee Konstantinou (University of Maryland, College Park)

The importance of Art Spiegelman as a pioneer and theorist of comics is hard to overstate. His work has not only pushed the boundaries of comics (both in terms of form and subject matter) but also convinced many readers and critics of this art form's inherent aesthetic value. Indeed, the development of the term "graphic novel" in part signaled a burgeoning critical appreciation of the power of comics, an appreciation that Spiegelman's pen — from his underground comix to his Pulitzer Prize-winning MAUS to his tireless critical advocacy of comics and cartooning — helped foster.
