The “ninth art” is the focus of interest of “Comic and Literature”, the new monograph of the Thematic Research Network “The Children’s and Youth Literatures of the Iberian and Ibero-American Framework” (LIJMI) which, each year, contributes a publication with the purpose of serving as a tool in the mediation tasks between books and reading. Those who are interested in this hybrid product between art and literature, known as bande dessinée (BD), comic, comic-book or história em quadrinhos, among other forms, will find in this publication a set of panoramic studies of the situation of the comic in the Spanish, Catalan, Galician, Portuguese, Basque, Brazilian and Mexican spheres. You will also find a wide selection of works, which are examples of literary graphic biography, comic adaptations of classic works or comics that are formally or thematically attractive, and a set of twenty-four detailed analyses of some of the most significant titles. ” Comic and Literature” does not leave aside the importance of literary and artistic education through comics and offers guidelines in this sense as well.
