Kyle A. Hammonds (University of Oklahoma) takes George Takei’s They Called Us Enemy as a case study of how comics use both narrative and semiotic parallels to present-day atrocities to influence how readers refigure their understanding of the past. Kyle P. Vealey (West Chester University) surveys and analyzes atomic energy propaganda comics and how they historically shaped public attitudes toward nuclear energy in the post-war period. Michael MacBride reclaims the forgotten history of John Sam Allen, one of The Advocate’s founders and the only comic artist for the magazine's first year but whose legacy has been forgotten by time. Almas Khan (University of Arkansas at Little Rock) analyzes the rise of critical legal history graphic narratives to focus on how they illuminate understudied histories of marginalized groups while challenging the disciplinary epistemologies of law, history, and literature.
