Fighting ISIS with comic books

Fighting ISIS with comic books | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Via Anca Toader
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Kathryn Nave:  'Jordanian social activist, Suleiman Bakhit believes we can fight ISIS with comic books. "Everything begins with a story," he told the audience at WIRED2014. "Narratives and myths give us a sense of purpose, they give us a compelling sense of direction in our lives."'

Anca Toader's curator insight, December 12, 2014 10:56 AM

A twist on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's famous speech about "the danger of a single story". Suleiman Bakhit explains the toxic effect of the 'single story' in the Middle East where it creates "terrorism disguised as heroism". His solution to this problem? Comic books. Fascinating!

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, October 14, 2013 6:06 AM

The graphic novel has undergone some permutations since 2009 and will be released ahead of the movie (which comes out in January) but not by much, so many readers will go into the movie cold, knowing not much more than who’s in it and the basic sense for plot that the trailers give.

Despite the odd hiccup, comics seem to be successfully embracing digital whilst also growing their traditional print base.  It makes a great lesson for any of the creative industries struggling with the transition to digital.

Bastante interesante. Me gusta ver estos cambios, en especial porque poco a poco se empiezan a ver las fusiones entre los estilos estadounidense y japonés (hell, yeah, me refiero a Avatar: La leyenda de Aang/Korra).

 

Personalmente, me encanta que los cómics empiecen a usar más esta plataforma. No que no lo hubieran hecho antes (Marvel luego te engancha para que descargues libremente el número 1 de todos sus cómics y luego ya te vende los demás) o que no hubieran existido plataformas para hacerlo (Comicrack!!!). 

Como sea, me parece que estas tendencias son perfectamente observables hoy día y que podemos ver a dónde hacen evolucionar al cómic sin grandes temores a que echen algo a perder (además de la línea editorial de DC, is that to say)

The Science Of Comic Strips

The Science Of Comic Strips | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Eric Jaffe:  "[Psychologist Neil Cohn of University of California at San Diego] says any language has a "holy triumvirate" of elements: expressive form, grammar, and meaning. Comics, he argues, meet all three requirements."

Giuseppe Fattori's curator insight, January 8, 2014 5:16 PM

Language is more than just a series of words strung together. A sentence must have some essential structure, some system of rules governing words and clauses--a grammar. You don't have to be Strunk or White to recognize this system at work; it's automatic in the brain. In Noam Chomsky's famous example, people know that the meaningless sentence "colorless green ideas sleep furiously" is grammatically correct the very first time they see it.

La idea del "cambio ilusorio" de Stan Lee me sorprendió muchísimo. Lo demás fue medio "meh" porque, aunque tiene un punto en eso de los errores de narración, hay que ver que el público meta de los cómics (en especial los de antes) eran hombres adolescentes. Violencia + personajes femeninos de apoyo eran un home hit.
