American Comics, Literary Theory, and Religion free pdf Just as often as superheroes journey into the afterlife, they also return from it. Their surprising immortality has created its own set of storytelling rules and expectations- it also has come to influence their secular readership in new interreligious investigations of narrative character and personal selfhood.
