- Comic books are the ancestor of the graphic novel, opening up the opportunity for others to use collage and image in organic ways, helping to extend the possibilities of the storytelling art. In this class we will explore a rich, though vastly underappreciated literary form: the graphic novel. It is considered more of a format and not a genre, allowing for the story to be fiction, non-fiction, history, fantasy, an anthology and more. We will look at this format in terms of poetics--the interplay of word and picture--and in terms of what they have to say about our lives and the lives of others. We'll learn how to read them, how to talk about how they get made and how they work, how to understand, and how to enjoy, some of the kinds of comics and graphic novels (that is, some of the genres) that make up the history of this medium in the modern English-speaking world.
