Comix and social studies?

Some time from now I'll be writing a paper in which I have to mix two different subjects, their theories and their methods. Well, I'm going to write in danish (as in english class for you guys) and social sciences. Initially I'd intended to write about Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, mixing it up with some sociology and whatnot. However I'm also interested in what other possibilities there could be when it comes to writing about comics in a social sciences perspective. The more complex the work the better. Any suggestions?

    It may not have the same resonance in Danish, but Watchmen is a deconstruction of the modern superhero myth and an examination of Cold War culture in America. There's a ton of content that can be viewed through the lens of social sciences.

    Um, okay. This sounds a lot like you want us to come up with your ideas for you, and you don't pay us enough for that.

    What I will allow, however, is if you come up with a few ideas yourself, explain your thinking, and ask us to critique.

    You can make a new thread for that if you'd like.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn
