       The editors of _American Heroes: Figures of Americana in Comics Books_
are now seeking submissions. _American Heroes_ is now under heavy
consideration from a major university press and will be a collection of
scholarly essays dealing with comic book figures with strongly American ties.
Essays should be essentially historicist in nature but can inculcate much
from Popular Culture and Critical Theory as they examine the mystique, charm,
and relevance of comic book figures distinctly American. Special emphasis
will be placed on essays exploring patriot-themed heroes (such as Captain
American or Sgt. Rock, for example). Many topics are available from the
editors, but we are interested in reviewing essays as well. For more
information, contact General Editor Bucky Carter at

         From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
