ASU Students Hold Midterm Comic Expo
June 20, 2014
Students in Dr. Musgrove’s “Reading Graphic Novels” course this summer share their comics drawn for a midterm assignment.
In this special topics course on comics and graphic novels, students were assigned to draw a comic of at least 2 pages, 12 panels, and 3 colors that depicted an influential comic artist or graphic novelist.
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.
