What Is A Superhero? with Kieron Gillen, Si Spurrier, Will Brooker & Richard Reynolds


Supermen and Wonder Women are living amongst us, not only in comics, films, games and television, but as cosplay escapism, alternative personas, communities and lifestyles. Acclaimed British writers for Marvel comics, Kieron Gillen (Iron Man, Young Avengers (above)) and Si Spurrier (Judge Dredd, X-Men), join expert academics and contributors to the new survey What Is A Superhero? from Oxford University Press, Richard Reynolds (Superheroes: A Modern Mythology) and Will Brooker (Batman Unmasked), to analyse the definitions, appeal and relevance of superheroes today.



A Comica Conversation hosted by Alex Fitch of Panel Borders on Resonance FM. In association with Oxford University Press. Followed by book signings.
