Attention comics fans:
Dr. Robin S. Rosenberg, editor of The Psychology of Superheroes
(Benbella Press, $17.95) and "The Superheroes" blog
at Psychology Today's
site, needs our help. She's working on a book at Oxford Press with comics scholar Pete Coogan titled What Is a Superhero?
And she needs data from the experts: Us, the fans.
She has set up a web-based questionnaire at http://www.drrobinrosenberg.com/superhero-surveys.php
, and I encourage everyone reading this to fill it out. We've all read books on comics with bad information, or that condescended to the medium. This is our chance to contribute to good work on comics, and I trust that Rosenberg will use it well -- she's one of the best.
So jump on in. I know you will, because you are heroes all!
