More and more people are noticing links between urban geography and the spaces within the layout of panels on the comics page. Benjamin Fraser explores the representation of the city in a range of comics from across the globe. Comics address the city as an idea, a historical fact, a social construction, a material-built environment, a shared space forged from the collective imagination, or as a social arena navigated according to personal desire. Accordingly, Fraser brings insights from urban theory to bear on specific comics. The works selected comprise a variety of international, alternative, and independent small-press comics artists, from engravings and early comics to single-panel work, graphic novels, manga, and trading cards, by artists such as Will Eisner, Tsutomu Nihei, Hariton Pushwagner, Julie Doucet, Frans Masereel, and Chris Ware. In the first monograph on this subject, Fraser touches on many themes of modern urban life: activism, alienation, consumerism, flânerie, gentrification, the mystery story, science fiction, sexual orientation, and working-class labor. He leads readers to images of such cities as Barcelona, Buenos Aires, London, Lyon, Madrid, Montevideo, Montreal, New York, Oslo, Paris, São Paolo, and Tokyo. Through close readings, each chapter introduces readers to specific comics artists and works and investigates a range of topics related to the medium’s spatial form, stylistic variation, and cultural prominence. Mainly, Fraser mixes interest in urbanism and architecture with the creative strategies that comics artists employ to bring their urban images to life.

"Visible Cities prompts readers to reconsider their relationship to the landscapes of cities. Poems explore streets in cities all over the world, while the photographs find beauty in back lanes, observe people taking their coffee breaks, capture people playing with a work of public art or pulling a ladder onto the roof of a downtown building. The language of the poems creates a poetic style that expresses the challenges and joys of living in cities. The photographs come from all over the world--Regina, Saskatoon, Chicago, New York, Paris, and Venice."--

With rich images and detailed text, the tumultuous history, local legends, and colorful character of Budapest are revealed in this visual travel guide. Travelers will discover what the Hapsburg emperor said about Europe’s most beautiful opera house, why the Hungarians eat paprika, and who bowed to the ground in thanks when he first saw Buddha. The coffeehouses of Budapest and their resident poets, the steamy Turkish baths, and the old haunts of the pashas, the stern-faced symbols of Communism and the Renaissance splendors of a vanished world, are described in lively detail. Eight guided walks highlight the city’s ancient history, grandiose architecture, vibrant culture, savory restaurants, and local traditions.
