Do the Gods Wear Capes?

Another set of congratulations are in order: this summer Ben Saunders’ book, Do the Gods Wear Capes? Spirituality, Fantasy, and Superheroes was published in the UK and US by Continuum BooksSaunders is Associate Professor of English here at UO, curator of the Understanding Superheroes exhibit at the Schnitzer and the accompanying academic conference, the major figure behind the forthcoming Comics Minor here at UO, and an all-around swell guy.

The book itself is academically rigorous and imminently readable (not a common combination). It also has a kickin’ original Mike Allred cover. You can get the book through Amazon, but it is likely available through the campus Duck Store and several local bookshops. Congratulations to Professor Saunders on the new book!
