Comic Books have historically been an avenue for entertainment as well as social and political commentary. They are a way to demonstrate the sophisticated interplay between images and text, blur the lines that delineate high and low art, and frequently challenge the norms around narratives, sequence, and genre. For this class, we will examine the cultural significance of comics and also discover the elements necessary for creating your own comic including scripting, storyboarding, composition, and lettering.
