Chapter Two is titled “Popular Prints and Caricature” and discusses the notion of the mass media and their audience in ninth- to fourteenth-century China, as well as Medieval and Renaissance Europe. Goya did not altogether abandon this project; 11 years later, he began a new series that became known as The Disasters of War (1810–1820). What ties these far-flung adventures together is a mythic creature, the Phoenix, that appears and drives the characters toward greater ambitions and fixes their fates on achieving a higher destiny than the society of the day gives them.

How will the people of Israel be able to stand in the face of a decree from the king of Persia that could totally annihilate them? Bang. (DC Entertainment, Jul.), set in Baghdad in 2003 and featuring a diverse group of characters forced to work together to solve a murder. The wayang puppet theater had a resurgence of popularity in the 1970s following the publication of a series of comic books based on the wayang stories by the artist R. The surge in interest in manhua that buoyed Shanghai Sketch created an opening for a few women to emerge as cartoonists, including the notable example of Liang Baibo (ca. 1911–1970), who took the pen name ‘‘Bomb’’; she later changed her name to just the sound of a bomb, ‘‘Bon.’’ Her best-known comic was about a thoroughly modern woman, Miss Bee, which first appeared in 1935.

Composed of two characters meaning “in spite of oneself” (or “lax”) and “picture,” manga is loosely translated as “pictorial whims” or “whimsical pictures.” Picture/text scrolls had existed for more than a millennium before Hokusai, but modern manga, according to historians, owes its format to the late 19th Century political cartoons and early 20th Century multi-panel comic strips of European and American newspapers, and the “god of manga,” Astro Boy creator Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989), who transposed the storytelling techniques of the German and French movies he saw as a student in post-war Japan to the medium.

Furthermore, the intense competition among publications became a powerful driving force for innovation in graphic narrative. These less popular works would not only enrich the collection by appealing to patrons who are already well-versed in Manga, but might encourage those who are just beginning to read comics to continue.
