The Graphic Lives of Fathers

Memory, Representation, and Fatherhood in North American Autobiographical Comics

This book explores the representation of fatherhood in contemporary North American autobiographical comics that depict paternal conduct from the post-war period up to the present. It offers equal space to autobiographical comics penned by daughters who represent their fathers’ complicated and often disappointing behavior, and to works by male cartoonists who depict and usually celebrate their own experiences as fathers. This book asks questions about how the desire to forgive or be forgiven can compromise the authors’ ethics or dictate style, considers the ownership of life stories whose subjects cannot or do not agree to be represented, and investigates the pervasive and complicated effects of dominant masculinities. By close reading these cartoonists’ complex strategies of (self-)representation, this volume also places photography and archival work alongside the problematic legacy of self-deprecation carried on from underground comics, and shows how the vocabulary of graphic narration can work with other media and at the intersection of various genres and modes to produce a valuable scrutiny of contemporary norms of fatherhood.

Bestselling parenting author Rob Kemp (The Expectant Dad's Survival Guide) delivers the ultimate guide to navigating your child's life milestones (0 months to 50 years) and offers advice on how fathers can best play a lasting, impactful or at least vaguely useful role in it. Kids don't come with an instruction manual. (Not that most men would read one if they did). Instead they're shaped by life-forming milestones and learn-as-they-go mistakes which you, as modern, responsible fathers must be there to help them deal with, solve or at least advise upon pretty much from their birth until you've drawn your last breath. This book will give you a head's up on all the defining moments you are guaranteed to experience as a parent. It'll warn you when your life is going to take a change of course, how your child is going to influence the choices you make and give you some practical, knowing, sanity saving methods of dealing with them. Each moment is headlined with a common scenario that dads have encountered down through generations – but will still come as a shock to you for the first time. And for every milestone moment, landmark action or parenting task to perform there's a sound advice and strategic solutions to help you cope and even discover the purported 'joys' of parenthood...
