COMM 343: Graphic Novel

Catalog Description

(3 cr) Once the domain of sticky-fingered kids clutching nickels and dimes, comics have grown up and are establishing themselves as a fast-growing and respected literary genre. Students enrolled in Graphic Novel will explore this cultural phenomenon by analyzing works such as Art Spiegelman’s Maus and Craig Thompson’s Blankets. Students also will write and design their own graphic novels. Drawing skills are not mandatory for success in this class, as even non-artists can produce compelling stories using the imaging and layout software provided.
