WHY SHOULD I TAKE THIS CLASS? Over the last 13 years or so, the influence of comics on U.S. popular culture has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance, especially in film and television. Understanding their history and controversies, mastering their stylistic language and effects, and engaging with the actual process of making a still-motion comic will make you a better producer and consumer of comic-based media. ComicComm will teach you to critique and create comics.
