We believe that the graphic novel is emerging in Latin America and elsewhere as a uniquely powerful medium through which to explore the nature of twenty-first century subjectivity and especially forms of embodiment or mediatization that bind humans to their non-human environment.

These can be very productively drawn out in relation to modes of posthuman thought and experience, and that is the focus of our book. We discuss a range of recent graphic novels from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay, all of which experiment in exciting ways with transmediality, the topological representation of space in the city, or embodied modes of perception and cognition.

They are often concerned with finding a new form of ethics for a posthuman world in which agency is both dispersed beyond the human self and paradoxically rooted in the materiality of an embodied existence. Publishing open access with UCL Press will enable us to distribute our research much more effectively. The New Wave passed first through youth fads in fashion, design and the novel before cresting at Cannes in where its effects were patently international.

Most titles mentioned in this work have had fragile performances in terms of box office, and a number of films have circulated out of the mainstream film circuit. Suppia offers a brief overview of Brazilian science fiction cinema from the early apparitions of the genre to recent film production.

Ginway and Suppia examine science fiction motifs in films by Brazilian director Jorge Furtado. Finally, Suppia provides a substantial survey of science fiction in Brazilian cinema, with a comprehensive critical history of feature-length Brazilian SF films, as well as a broad panorama of short Brazilian SF film.
