[issue] Volume 5, Issue 4 Alan Moore and Adaptation

Posted 04 Apr, 2011

On behalf of Donald Ault and the Editorial Staff of ImageTexT, I am pleased to announce that ImageTexT Volume 5, Issue 4 is now available:

This specual issue of ImageTexT, "Alan Moore and Adaptation" is edited by Rex Krueger and Katherine Shaeffer. The issue interrogates the relationship of Alan Moore's acclaimed work in comics to the process of adaptation. It seeks to explore not only how Moore's comics have been adapted, but how Moore's comics frequently function as adaptation in their own right.

"Alan Moore and Adaptation" features articles by Colin Beineke, Megan A.Condis, Vyshali Manivannan, Paul Petrovic and Jack Teiwes, as well as reviews by Eric L. Berlatsky, Ellen Grabiner, Mervi Miettinen, Laura Perna, Matthew Pustz, Caleb Simmons and Anastasia Ulanowicz.
