In a course designed primarily as a reading course, students had studied Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics and applied their understanding of comic vocabulary to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s graphic novel Watchmen.  However, in this case, they were asked to apply their understanding of the choices available to comic artists to a comic of their own.
