Titel: Comic Book Crime: Truth, Justice, and the American Way Autorinnen: Nickie D. Phillips & Staci Strobl Jahr: 2013 Reihe: Alternative Criminology Verlag: NYU Press ISBN: 0814767885

Diese Rezension wurde verfasst von Sarah Schirmer, Hamburg.

„Comic Book Crime: Truth, Justice, and the American Way” ist Teil der Alternative Criminology Series der New York University Press und fachlich in der Cultural Criminology angesiedelt. Nickie D. Phillips, Associate Professor am St. Francis College in New York, und Staci Strobl, ebendort Associate Professor am John Jay College, untersuchen in ihrer Arbeit amerikanische Comicbücher, um dadurch das Verständnis der Amerikaner von „crime and justice” verstehen und nachvollziehen zu können. Erklärtes Ziel der beiden Autorinnen ist es, den/ die Leser/in für die Subkultur des Comics zu sensibilisieren. Sie schlussfolgern: „We suggest that the impact of comic books is greater than it may first appear” (226).

Aber von Anfang an: Phillips und Strobl unterteilen ihr Werk in zehn Kapitel. Mit Kapitelüberschriften wie „Aren’t we supposed to be the good guys?” oder „Take down the bad guys, save the girl” bedienen sie sich stilistisch einer Comic-Terminologie und untermalen ihre Ausführungen mit beispielhaften Erzählungen aus Comicbüchern.
Grundsätzlich analysieren Phillips und Strobl Comicbücher, die nach dem 11. September 2001 erschienen sind. Trotzdem erklären sie zuvor die Geschichte des Comicbuches in den USA vor 2001 und geben beispielsweise darüber Aufschluss, wie sich die Comic-Industrie durch den „Comics Code” seit 1954 selbst zensierte.

TEENAGE - Official US Theatrical Trailer (HD)

IN US THEATERS - March 14th, 2014 -- TEENAGE Dir. Matt Wolf Featuring Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, Julia Hummer, Jessie Usher OFFICIAL SELECTION: Tribeca Film Festival 2013 OFFICIAL SELECTION: HotDocs Int'l Film Festival 2013 Teenagers didn't always exist. They had to be invented. As the cultural landscape around the world was thrown into turmoil during the industrial revolution, and with a chasm erupting between adults and youth, the concept of a new generation took shape. Whether in America, England, or Germany, whether party-crazed Flappers or hip Swing Kids, zealous Nazi Youth or frenzied Sub-Debs, it didn't matter - this was a new idea of youth. They were all "Teenagers." A hypnotic rumination on the genesis of youth culture from the end of the 19th century to the first half of the 20th, Matt Wolf's TEENAGE is a living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits, and diary entries read by Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, and others. Inspired by Jon Savage's book and set to a shimmering contemporary score by Bradford Cox (Deerhunter / Atlas Sound), TEENAGE is a mesmerizing trip into the past and a riveting look at the very idea of "coming-of-age."

Real-Life Big Brother: Secret NSA Data Centres And Global Surveillance

Naked Citizens - World: How online and CCTV surveillance data is being used to arrest 'terror suspects'. For downloads and more information visit: Increasing numbers of 'terror suspects' are being arrested on the basis of online and CCTV surveillance data. Authorities claim they act in the public interest, but does this intense surveillance keep us safer? "I woke up to pounding on my door", says Andrej Holm, a sociologist from the Humboldt University. In what felt like a scene from a movie, he was taken from his Berlin home by armed men after a systematic monitoring of his academic research deemed him the probable leader of a militant group. After 30 days in solitary confinement, he was released without charges. Across Western Europe and the USA, surveillance of civilians has become a major business. With one camera for every 14 people in London and drones being used by police to track individuals, the threat of living in a Big Brother state is becoming a reality. At an annual conference of hackers, keynote speaker Jacob Appelbaum asserts, "to be free of suspicion is the most important right to be truly free". But with most people having a limited understanding of this world of cyber surveillance and how to protect ourselves, are our basic freedoms already being lost?
