Abstract

This paper is a part of an ongoing research project which attempts to recognise comic books as philosophy. This approach resists interpreting comics as supplements to written philosophy or using comics as a convenient means by which to elucidate philosophical ideas. This project also moves away from interrogating comic books through already existing philosophical lenses. However, this doesn’t mean completely ignoring philosophical ideas, which clearly exist within the context from which comic books themselves are made and read, and which have an impact upon both their fabrication and interpretation. In this paper, I interrogate Ed Piskor’s X-Men Grand Design, a series of six books that was begun in 2017.
