Victoria Minnich (Fishnik.Net!) shows how comics can depict the complexity of marine human-environmental problems that could not otherwise be captured or expressed by the languages of science or the written word alone. Tim Posada (Saddleback College) argues that the superhero film genre's visual and narrative excess (depictions of the "uncanny," narrative oddities specific to comics panels) makes these movies function more like comics. Meshell Sturgis (University of Washington) examines how autobiographical comics-as they appear in the music videos of Dreezy, Yemmy Alade, and Little Simz-reflect Black feminist means of performative resistance through the dual properties of comics panels as simultaneously closed and open narratives. Devon Keyes (Virginia Tech) argues that Jason Aaron's Doctor Strange repurposes the in-panel negative space to complicate the foreground, and that a reading of such a negotiation parallels the negotiation of physical space between the normal and mystical realms that Doctor Strange oversees and protects.
