Michele Brittany (Horror in Space: Critical Essays on a Film Subgenre) uses historical and intertextual approaches to identify themes and tropes in comic books featuring the mummy as the main character. James R. Thompson (Comic Book Historians Group) examines how techniques of the comics form are used to represent "Authority" in the police interrogation scene from diverse comic book adaptations of Poe's "A Tell-Tale Heart." Nicholas Diak (The New Peplum: Essays on Sword and Sandal Films and Television Programs Since the 1990s) employs concepts such as gender representation and the hero's journey to explore how Dynamite Comics's Re-Animater series reimagines and subverts H. P. Lovecraft's "Herbert West–Reanimator."
