Chris Gavaler is an associate professor at W&L University, comics editor of SHENANDOAH, and series editor of Bloomsbury Critical Guides in Comics Studies. Chris has authored many books on the studies of superheroes such as "Superhero Thought Experiments: Comic Book Philosophy" which examines the deep philosophical topics addressed in superhero comics, authors Gavaler and Goldberg read plot lines for the complex thought experiments they contain and analyze their implications as if the comic authors were philosophers. The next book titled "On the Origin of Superheroes: From the Big Bang to Action Comics No. 1" from the creation of the universe, through mythological heroes and gods, to folklore, ancient philosophy, revolutionary manifestos, discarded scientific theories, and gothic monsters, the sweep and scale of the superhero’s origin story is truly epic.
