The novelistic tradition of economic individualism was challenged in the twentieth century as the rise of the corporation changed the nature of work and ownership. The author examines contemporary U.S. novels set in the comic-book industry or that use comic-book characters in their narratives. Comic-book narratives reveal particularly clearly the corporate influence on originality and the attempt to claim ownership of artistic creations. The author concludes with Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, a novel that breaks with this tradition and uses the comic book to redefine the relationship between the individual and the economic landscape.
