Summary/Abstract: The book "Pejzaże miasta w komiksie. Studia nad komiksem" focuses on the study of comics, where the main motif becomes the analysis of urban space. The city is a research track, but also a pretext for addressing the issues of the functioning of comics, its structure and components. The author starts with an overview of the state of comics studies. Another important part of the monograph is the preparation of tools and methods which are important in the study and analysis of comics. The book constructs and describes the research methodology, including its new elements. The final part of the work, in turn, offers examples of comics analysis in the light of the study of urban space, also employing the developed tools. The adopted research perspective allows to use the methods developed in this book to study also other, not only urban, tropes and themes in comics.
