Comic art, creativity and the law

Elgar (series: Elgar Law and Entrepreneurship),
Cheltenham, UK, 2014, xix, 199 pp.


The creation of works of comic
art, including graphic novels, comic books, cartoons and comic strips, and
political cartoons, is affected, and at times limited, by a diverse array of
laws, ranging from copyright law to free speech laws. This book examines how
this intersection affects the creative process, and proposes approaches that
encourage, rather than limit, that process in the comic art genre. Attention to
the role comic art occupies in popular culture, and how the law responds to
that role, is also analyzed.
