Robert C. "R.C." Harvey (Perpendicular Pronoun Press) reviews the career of Wally Wallgren, a WWI soldier cartoonist whose irreverent depictions of life in uniform relieved the tedium and the tensions of warfare. Harvey explores why Wallgren, famous during the war, has been overlooked in the history of cartooning. Jason Bainbridge (Swinburne University of Technology) uses an analysis of key Uncle Scrooge comics, characters, and stories to support his argument that Scrooge McDuck is emblematic of the economic patterns of comic book franchises and prefigures the transmedia development of comic book characters from Marvel and DC. Aaron Humphrey (University of Adelaide) uses critical discourse analysis to trace how Krazy Kat, a mechanically reproduced work of art, acquired the aura of a unique work of art.
