Christy Admiraal:  "There’s no question that anyone who considers himself or herself part of a fandom will have a different read on a piece of media from someone on the outside—whether it’s due to taking in all supplemental material, shipping a certain pairing, participating in fan theorizing, or some combination thereof—but exactly how does their experience differ from a reader or regular viewer who’s never dived any deeper into non-canonical material?"

Henry Jenkins: "Today, I want to highlight yet another effort to encourage civic and political reflections around the superhero genre. In this case, I am focusing on a study and reflection guide recently released by the Fandom Forward Project of the Harry Potter Alliance, to encourage conversations about the representation of gender, disability, and political/civic engagement within the extended Marvel universe."

Joseph Oldham:  "Whilst certain ‘high-end’ television series are routinely praised for bringing supposedly ‘cinematic’ values to television, it seems to me that the Marvel series doing something which might be conceptualised as the reverse, porting modes of serialised storytelling that have been prominently developed on television over the last few decades into a popular film series."

Jeff Gomez:  "More than another action-packed superhero romp, “Winter Soldier” serves as a primer in successfully structuring and steering a sprawling franchise, and stands as a warning to rival Warner Bros. and its DC superheroes that old school one-off tent pole development is becoming a thing of the past."

Adam X. Smith:  "Lots of media relies on our nostalgia for something we remember from when we were children, and no matter how well or how badly it is executed, the tactic often works for one pretty good reason" ...

Michael R. Underwood:  "When Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD was announced, there was excitement, there was wariness, and everything in-between. An ongoing TV show as a tie-in to a powerful superhero franchise? This was something new, something different."

Comics are becoming a powerful option for transmedia projects so it's interesting to look at how the genre is evolving ...

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, March 12, 2013 7:48 AM

Comic book geeks: Marvel loves you. But it wants to expand its social circle. Don't worry. Whether it's debuting Wolverine's Japanese adventures or adding adaptive sound to your reading experience, the company will always hold you diehards dear. But at this year’s SXSW Interactive festival, Marvel unveiled five digital initiatives to woo non-fans, too.

Comic book and gaming industry is the catalyst to how publising will be viewed in the future.
