Together we stand, together we fall
Wright, Bradford W. Comic Book Nation: the Transformation of Youth Culture in America. Baltimore, MD. London; Johns Hopkins University Press, 2003. Paperback Edition. Print.
In Bradford Wrights Comic Book Nation: the Transformation of Youth Culture in America he bases the book around two main parts; comics and war and the effect the two had on each other. Wright tells the history of comics with the reaction of the social and political scene being a factor with the readers and fans. This book shares a history background on comics, explaining the social society as a turning point in our youth culture and how the older generations influenced the pace of comics. Comic Book Nation; the Transformation of Youth Culture in America is relatable to my topic because it not only comes from a sociological stand point but recognizes society as a whole for the rise and fall in this comic era.
