I took a short (three and a half days!) trip to Iceland in December 2012. This travelogue comic explores my experiences on that trip, and includes art and stories about my second trip to Iceland, in December 2013. This collection includes all comics and extras from my first three (smaller) books, plus over 30 pages of new watercolors, stories, a glossary, and an Icelandic pronunciation guide. "A terrific comic travelogue... It made me feel as if I actually visited a place I've never been to, one I now want to 'return' to soon. Fantastic colors, too." - Brian K. Vaughan, creator of Saga, Y: The Last Man, Runaways "Lonnie Mann carefully parses out the wonders and pitfalls of Icelandic tourism with charming personality and enthusiastic artwork. The result is a lovely and entertaining read; his love of the trip is infectious, and his voice is adorable." - Lucy Knisley, Creator of Age of License, Relish, and French Milk

In her graphic memoirs, New York Times-best selling cartoonist Lucy Knisley paints a warts-and-all portrait of contemporary, twentysomething womanhood, like writer Lena Dunham (Girls). In the next installment of her graphic travelogue series, Displacement, Knisley volunteers to watch over her ailing grandparents on a cruise. (The book’s watercolors evoke the ocean that surrounds them.) In a book that is part graphic memoir, part travelogue, and part family history, Knisley not only tries to connect with her grandparents, but to reconcile their younger and older selves. She is aided in her quest by her grandfather’s WWII memoir, which is excerpted. Readers will identify with Knisley’s frustration, her fears, her compassion, and her attempts to come to terms with mortality, as she copes with the stress of travel complicated by her grandparents’ frailty.

With this volume, the editors Katharina Edtstadler, Sandra Folie, and Gianna Zocco propose an extension of the traditional conception of imagology as a theory and method for studying the cultural construction and literary representation of national, usually European characters. Consisting of an instructive introduction and 21 articles, the book relates this sub-field of comparative literature to contemporary political developments and enriches it with new interdisciplinary, transnational, intersectional, and intermedial perspectives. The contributions offer [1] a reconsideration and update of the field’s methods, genres, and theoretical frames; [2] trans-/post-national, migratory, and marginalized perspectives beyond the European nation-state; [3] insights into geopolitical dichotomies such as Orient/Occident; [4] intersectional approaches considering the entanglements of national images with notions of age, class, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity/race; [5] investigations of the role of national images in visual narratives and music.
