Tony Chavarria (Museum of Indian Arts & Culture) examines Krazy Kat's fictional Coconino County as a presentation of how the indigenous peoples of the Southwest view their ancestral homelands. Jay Olinger (Portland Community College) places Fletcher Hanks' Fantomah as the first superheroine while also considering her mission within a modern context, proving that looking back at comics history can indeed help us move forward. Phillip Vaughan (University of Dundee) looks at the creation and ongoing production of Saltire, a Scottish superhero steeped in the mythology and folklore of Caledonian history, who served as a symbol for political feelings during the 2014 Scottish independence referendum.
