Retcon Game: Retroactive Continuity and the Hyperlinking of America. Andrew J. Friedenthal (University Press of Mississippi)

I have written a short review of Andrew J. Friendenthal’s Retcon Game, a great introduction to one of the most riveting and interesting narratological structures to have ever emerged within the production of North-American mainstream superhero comics, although arguably stemming from previous literary experiences. The author does a terrific job in creating precisely those links, as well as a broad contextualization in North American culture, delving into other social realities, so it goes well beyond comics.

A fast read, which is a plus, this could be easily turned into a classroom classic. The review is up at the Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics, which you can access here.
