From the publisher

It's now over twenty years since punk first pogoed its way into our consciousness. Punk Rock: So What? brings together a new generation of writers, journalists and scholars to provide the first comprehensive assessment of punk and its place in popular music history, culture and myth. Combining new research, methodologies and exclusive interviews, Punk Rock: So What? brings a fresh perspective to the analysis of punk culture, and kicks over many of the established beliefs about the meaning of punk.

Punk Rock: So What? re-situates punk in its historical context, analyzing the possible origins of punk in the New York art scene and Manchester clubs as well as in Malcolm McClaren's brain. The contributors question whether punk deserves its reputation as an anti-fascist, anti-sexist movement, challenging standard views of punk prevalent since the 1970s, and discussing the role played by such key figures as Johnny Rotten, Richard Hell, Malcolm McLaren.

Tracing punk's legacy in comics, literature, art and cinema as well as music and fashion--from films such as Sid and Nancy and The Great Rock `n' Roll Swindle to the work of contemporary artists such as Gavin Turk and Sarah Lucas--the contributors establish that, if anything, punk was more culturally significant than anyone has yet suggested.

Adult Comics: An Introduction (1993) - Roger Sabin [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]

Today, adult comics are part of the cultural landscpae in a way that would have been unimaginable a decade ago. In this first survey of its kind, the history of comic books for older readers is traced from the end of the 19th century to the present, taking in the pioneering titles pre-Great War, the underground titles of the 1960s, "fan"-dom in the 1970s and 1980s, and today's boom (including "graphic novels" and "Viz"). An international section, covering comics in the US, Europe and Japan, and a thematic discussion, including the role of women, the graphic novel in context, and cultural overspill is included. By taking a broad sweep, Sabin demonstrates that the widely-held notion that comics "grew up" in the late 1980s is a mistaken one, largely invented by the media.
