The Art of the Graphic Novel

Explores the principal techniques of comics art (the frame, lettering, line, etc.) for how they interpret a story, whether by advancing the narrative or by adding new layers of meaning to the text. Students will acquire a critical toolbox for text-image analysis of graphic novels and will apply them to novels assigned in class. Students will select an additional graphic novel to critique for the final project.
