The Graphic Novel

Spring 2019

Taught By: Josh Bayer

Section: A

CRN: 1988

Credits: 3

This course leads students step by step through the process of creating a short graphic novel. The course begins with analysis and critique of comics and then guides students through the stages involved in creating their own projects: outline, rough sketches, penciling, lettering, inking, and editing. Student work is critiqued in class, and students hold individual meetings with the instructor. The class studies work by cartoonists Art Spiegelman, Daniel Clowes, Renée French, Chris Ware, Alison Bechdel, Joe Matt, Gabrielle Bell, R. Crumb, and many more. Strong drawing skills are not required, as the emphasis of the class is on storytelling.
