IILLU 3275 Comix: Process and Practice

Beyond traditional super-heroic narratives, sequential-art in America (and beyond) is wide-open in both content and format. From short, autobiographical meditations to thousand-page historical epics, indy and alternative authors create comics from low-tech to polished, from low-brow to avant garde. Weekly assignments will push your storytelling skills, while class lectures demonstrate the vast range of comic book genres and production methods. Your comics can be anything you want, and in this class, they will be.
