Comic Book College
MIT media mensch Henry Jenkins is teaching a course this semester titled "Media in Cultural Context: Comics, Cartoons, and Graphic Storytelling." The required reading includes Alan Moore's Watchmen, Art Spiegelman's Jack Cole and the Plastic Man, Howard Cruse's Stuck Rubber Baby, Dylan Horrocks' Hicksville, and other notable books.

I've already missed the first class, but Henry's invited me to sit in on the course. Schedule willing, I plan to do so and will post reports on his lectures and the readings in Media Diet.
