This book examines the ways in which individual moments of violence develop, and are presented, in comics and graphic novels. It raises questions about depiction and the act of showing violence, but it also considers the ways in which violence can affect those involved over the long term. The impact of gender on violence, as well as the nature of sexual violence, are both considered here. Contributors discuss the ways in which violent acts can be rendered palatable (for example through humour) but also how they can create enormous trauma and long lasting repercussions for both perpetrators and victims. Together with Contexts of Violence in Comics, it offers a nuanced examination of the ways in which violence in comics is presented in different texts, genres, cultures and contexts.

This carefully crafted ebook: "Heart of Darkness (Unabridged Deluxe Edition)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Heart of Darkness (1899) is a classic of world literature. The book tells a story about a voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State, in the heart of Africa. Marlow, the story's narrator, tells his story to friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames, London, England. This setting provides the frame for Marlow's story of his obsession with the ivory trader Kurtz, which enables Conrad to create a parallel between London and Africa as places of darkness. Central to Conrad's work is the idea that there is little difference between so-called civilized people and those described as savages; Heart of Darkness raises important questions about imperialism and racism. Joseph Conrad acknowledged that Heart of Darkness was in part based on his own experiences during his travels in Africa. In 1890, at the age of 32, he was appointed by a Belgian trading company to serve as the captain of a steamer on the Congo River. Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England. Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties. He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature.

Celebrated writer Jason Aaron (Original Sin, Southern Bastards) and artist R.M. Guéra (BATMAN ETERNAL, DJANGO UNCHAINED) turn up the heat on their epic chronicle of crime, sin and salvation. Undercover FBI agent Dashiell Bad Horse may not believe in God, but recent events suggest that some higher power is working overtime to keep him alive. In fact, after several well-placed needles and a few well-aimed bullets, he’s better positioned than ever to take down the kingpin of the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation, Chief Lincoln Red Crow. But for all of Dash’s good fortune, his mother is still dead, and her murderer is still at large. He’s still strung out on heroin, and so is his unborn child’s mother—Red Crow’s daughter. And now he’s triggered the suspicions of the Chief’s deadliest enforcer, Shunka, a man more than willing to employ violence in the service of both discovering and keeping secrets.
