An owl informs Màrs, a Gandalf sort of time-sorcerer, on an outrageously dangerous elf, Moyo. Moyo plans to travel back to the big bang, which will destroy not only the Earth, but the entire universe. Through the American mass spying system, the NSA, Màrs chooses to send Lite to her ancestor Roger in the aim of damaging Moyo’s Time Wheel which he needs for his return-to-the-big-bang plan. But after going to Roger’s time to prevent him from killing his school teacher, an unexpected relativist effect turns Lite into a baby. Shocked and surprised, Màrs finds no better solution than to place the one-year-old Lite with two horrible aunts, the Mauroux sisters. Her placement involves in fact a baby swap which Lite later investigates and whose story elements she manipulates to frame her aunts. By a strange but fair justice, the Mauroux sisters end up in jail.

Whether one describes them as sequential art, graphic narratives or graphic novels, comics have become a vital part of contemporary culture. Their range of expression contains a tremendous variety of forms, genres and modes − from high to low, from serial entertainment for children to complex works of art. This has led to a growing interest in comics as a field of scholarly analysis, as comics studies has established itself as a major branch of criticism. This handbook combines a systematic survey of theories and concepts developed in the field alongside an overview of the most important contexts and themes and a wealth of close readings of seminal works and authors. It will prove to be an indispensable handbook for a large readership, ranging from researchers and instructors to students and anyone else with a general interest in this fascinating medium.

One of the most interesting but underexplored developments in recent cinema has been the international cycle of scary ghost movies stimulated by the success at the end of the 20th century of The Sixth Sense and the two Japanese Ringu films. In the wake of these films a series of ghost films has been made across a number of different countries, including the USA, Japan, South Korea, Spain, and Great Britain. This book looks at these films, but argues against the conventional view that they belong in the horror genre. Only a minority are horror films; the vast majority are more productively viewed as ghost melodramas. This opens the films up to analysis in terms of the theorisation of melodrama, in which psychoanalysis plays a central role. More than fifty representative films are discussed, many with close attention to textual detail, from a total of eleven different countries. Revealing narrative patterns, tropes, themes, and motifs, the book is a stimulating and insightful exploration of what is, in critical terms, a new generic area.
