"The Routledge Companion surveys the history and current state of comics studies as well as present new directions for the field," explains Dr. David Peterson, English Department. "To date, Bramlett has edited and co-edited three monographs on comics studies: Linguistics and the Study of Comics (2012), The Routledge Companion to Comics (2016), and The Future in Comics (forthcoming 2017)." He adds, "he has established himself as an internationally recognized, foundational scholar in the emergent field of comics studies, making important contributions to both academic and nonacademic understanding of one of the world’s most popular and influential art forms."
Co-editor Dr. Aaron Meskin, School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science, University of Leeds, writes, "The Routledge Companion to Comics is a major research handbook focusing on comics and graphic novels. It comprises 47 chapters which cover an extremely wide range of issues and perspectives.... In addition to his major contributions as an editor (he contributed one third of the work, if not more), Dr Bramlett also produced one of the finest chapters in the whole volume. His essay, "Comics and Linguistics," is simply put,the most useful discussion of how the field of Linguistics may contribute to the study of comics that I know."
