Created in 1941 by the psychologist William Marston, Wonder Woman would go on to have one of the longest continuous runs of published comic book adventures in the history of the industry. More than 70 years after her debut, Wonder Woman remains a popular culture icon. Throughout the intervening years many comic book creators have had a hand in guiding her story, resulting in different interpretations of the Amazon Princess. In this collection of new essays, each examines a specific period or storyline from Wonder Woman comic books and analyzes that story in regard to contemporary issues in American society.

"These essays provide an insightful and entertaining exploration of how a superhero team, spearheaded by America's most iconic pop culture creations, reflects, and sometimes critiques, American attitudes toward justice, morality and the use of power."--´╗┐Randy Duncan, director of Henderson State University's Comics Studies program, co-author of The Power of Comics. "Joseph J. Darowski's The Ages of the Justice League: Essays on America's Greatest Superheroes in Changing Times is an exceptional study that is highly informative, critically brilliant, and fun to read. It cements his already outstanding reputation as one of the foremost comics scholars in America."--Gary Hoppenstand, Michigan State University. The first superhero team from the Silver Age of comics, DC's Justice League has seen many iterations since its first appearance in 1960. As the original comic book continued and spin-off titles proliferated, talented writers, artists and editors adapted the team to appeal to changing audience tastes. This collection of new essays examines more than five decades of Justice League comics and related titles. Each essay considers a storyline or era of the franchise in its historical and social contexts.

This is George Dasent's classic collection of Scandinavian folklore. This is not about Norse mythology per se; so if you are looking for tales of Odin, Loki, and Freya etc., we would refer you to a volume entitled Tiivistelma. Rather, this is a volume that is more fairy and less Viking, or Saga, in nature. This is an anthology of folk tales, similar to the Grimm Brothers, or Campbell's Popular Tales of the West Highlands (also published by Abela Publishing). All of the usual suspects are in place, including giants, trolls, witches, evil step-siblings, magical boons and tasks, and anthropomorphic animals and beings. The introduction is exceptionally well written, and places various magical and other themes from the tales into the context of ancient Norse Pagan beliefs. It is a Victorian scholarly treatise however (with the requisite multipage footnotes and rhetorical flourishes), which will no doubt be appreciated by readers with an academic persuasion. Once past the introduction however, the prose descends to the young adult level, and the delightful stories can be appreciated by readers of all ages. But be warned, despite these tales being magical in character, these are tales from an era when political correctness did not exist. In the words of the translator, "the person who, in such a work, wilfully changes or softens, is as guilty as they "who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter." So join with us again and venture back in time to an age when the world still had a connection to the ethereal. A time when magic was still believed to exist. 33% of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities for educational purposes.
