Comic book artists: the next generation and the occupational imaginary of comics work -- Gatekeeping in comics publishing: a practical guide to gatekeeping research -- Toward maturity: analyzing the Spanish comics industry through a comparison of national graphic novels and Gafotaku-oriented manga -- The tail that ways the dog: the impact of distribution on the development and direction of the American comic book industry -- Reconfiguring the power structure of the comic book field: crowdfunding and the use of social networks -- "A Fumetto, a comic, and a BD walk into a bar..." : the translation of humor in comics -- Subcultural clusters and blurry boundaries: considering Art worlds and Fields of cultural production through localized manga production in Hungary.

This anthology explores tensions between the individualistic artistic ideals and the collective industrial realities of contemporary cultural production with eighteen all-new chapters presenting pioneering empirical research on the complexities and controversies of comics work. Art Spiegelman. Alan Moore. Osamu Tezuka. Neil Gaiman. Names such as these have become synonymous with the medium of comics. Meanwhile, the large numbers of people without whose collection action no comic book would ever exist in the first place are routinely overlooked. Cultures of Comics Work unveils this hidden, global industrial labor of writers, illustrators, graphic designers, letterers, editors, printers, typesetters, publicists, publishers, distributors, translators, retailers, and countless others both directly and indirectly involved in the creative production of what is commonly thought of as the comic book. Drawing upon diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives, an international and interdisciplinary cohort of cutting-edge researchers and practitioners intervenes in debates about cultural work and paves innovative directions for comics scholarship. -- from back cover.
