If you are interested in supervillains—or, for that matter, their wretched, do-good counterparts, the superheroes—then The Dark Side: A Supervillain Reader is for you. Bringing together essays related to film, history, literature, and contemporary comics, The Dark Side takes an interdisciplinary, multimedia approach to examining the deep history and current status of the supervillain. From the Kingpin to Red Son 's Superman to the fallen god heroes of Irredeemable and Injustice: Gods Among Us, the evolution of the bad guy is an exciting, often surprising one. Hear from contributors Ryan Litsey (Texas Tech University), Wyatt Phillips (Texas Tech University), Randy Duncan (Henderson State University), and Matt McEniry (Texas Tech University) as they engage with the trope's most pressing and central issues and offer the best possible starting point for supervillain studies.
