Not all fairy tales have happy ending. Classes. Quizzes. Crushes. Classmates going missing. Cults dedicated to your destruciton. School is rough on everybody, but it's especially hard on kids like Tim Hunter - a teenage magician destined to change the world. So when Tim's mentor, Dr. Rose, whisks him away from London on an important mission to a magical realm beyond space and time, it seems like just the break that the boy wizard needs. In fact, the land of Faerie is such a trip that Tim quickly starts to forget why he came there...or why he would ever want to leave. But he'd better remember soon. Besides the questionable motives that Titania, the queen of Faerie, has for wanting to keep him around, back in the mortal world the cult of the Cold Flame is poised to erase Ellie--the lost classmate Tim's been searching for--from the pages of existence. Young Tim is about to learn that even the most noble magic comes at a cost. Is he willing to pay the price?

This book shows how the unique characteristics of traditionally differentiated media continue to determine narrative despite the recent digital convergence of media technologies. The author argues that media are now each largely defined by distinctive industrial practices that continue to preserve their identities and condition narrative production. Furthermore, the book demonstrates how a given medium’s variability in institutional and technological contexts influences diverse approaches to storytelling. By connecting US film, television, comic book and video game industries to their popular fictional characters and universes; including Star Wars, Batman, Game of Thrones and Grand Theft Auto; the book identifies how differences in industrial practice between media inform narrative production. This book is a must read for students and scholars interested in transmedia storytelling.

The bastard is back. England's legendary street-level sorcerer has returned to his grimy roots with a second lease on life. Which leaves him with just one question: How the hell did that happen? Brutally retrieved from a tangle of apocalyptic futures and outright insanity, the working-class magus finds himself restored to the haunted shadows of London, where local gangsters are being shredded by terrifying entities. Their boss wants to hire Constantine to help, and without a penny to his name--and with a gun in his face--who is he to say no? But this isn't an open-and-shut exorcism. To put this madness back in its bottle, John must work with the man who tried to replace him during his missing years, and confront an impossible power with a horribly familiar face... One of the DC Universe's most iconic characters comes screaming and swearing back to the comics page in John Constantine: Hellblazer Vol. 1: Marks of Woe, courtesy of infernal talents Simon Spurrier, Aaron Campbell, Matías Bergara, Marcio Takara, and more!

This volume aims to intensify the interdisciplinary dialogue on comics and related popular multimodal forms (including manga, graphic novels, and cartoons) by focusing on the concept of medial, mediated, and mediating agency. To this end, a theoretically and methodologically diverse set of contributions explores the interrelations between individual, collective, and institutional actors within historical and contemporary comics cultures. Agency is at stake when recipients resist hegemonic readings of multimodal texts. In the same manner, “authorship” can be understood as the attribution of agency of and between various medial instances and roles such as writers, artists, colorists, letterers, or editors, as well as with regard to commercial rights holders such as publishing houses or conglomerates and reviewers or fans. From this perspective, aspects of comics production (authorship and institutionalization) can be related to aspects of comics reception (appropriation and discursivation), and circulation (participation and canonization), including their potential for transmedialization and making contributions to the formation of the public sphere.
