Abstract
“Georg Drennig’s “Fallujah Manhattan Transfer” looks at the comic book series DMZ and its futuristic depiction of Manhattan as a divided city, a war zone where various groups fight equally for survival and control, each laying claim to representing the ‘real’ America. Using Foucault, Drennig analyzes the inner-city war zone as a dystopian space in which those elements signifying an authentic American sense of identity ultimately cause the city’s demise.” (Maria-Theresia Holub: Placing America. Constructing America through Time and Space, S. 13)
