Comics and Graphic Novels

Comic books (and their movie adaptations) aren’t just for kids anymore; they have zoomed to the forefront of popular culture. Meanwhile, graphic novels have blossomed into a legitimate form of literature. These illustrated stories embrace everything from super-hero tales like The Dark Knight, to literary novels like Ghost World, to memoirs like Fun Home.
 
To tell these tales, it’s essential to understand the interdependence of art and text. Here you will learn how to conceive and write stories in an illustrated medium, how artists utilize such techniques as penciling/inking/coloring/lettering, and how to market your work. This course is equally valuable to writers and illustrators.  
 
If you want to tell illustrated stories, we’ll show you how to make them leap to life on the page.

This course, taught by an industry professional, allows you to get your feet wet going through the process of creating your own comic, by sketching out ideas, writing part of the script, and pitching it to your peers.
