M. Thomas Inge (1936–2021) was a champion of comics studies and a beloved mentor and member of the popular culture community. His dedication to comics and popular culture studies helped cultivate the research and careers of countless scholars. University Press of Mississippi’s own long and rewarding relationship with Inge began in the late 1980s. In establishing the Tom Inge Series on Comics Artists, UPM is committed to commemorating that friendship and sustaining Inge’s preeminent legacy.Books in the series will include monographs and edited and multi-author works that explore single-author or thematic studies across the breadth of graphic narrative production. We welcome work regardless of genre and national origin. Multidisciplinary, comparative, and multicultural approaches to understanding comics are particularly welcome, as is work centered on the achievements of women, creators of color, and LGBTQ+ artists and authors. The series highlights a wide range of disciplinary, methodological, and theoretical approaches to comics scholarship.
