ARTS208M - Comics and Graphic Novels (2-3-3)

Students of this course will study theories behind comic illustration by reading excerpts from some of the best examples of graphic literature today. Topics studied include visual metaphor, story arcs, plot development, character design, panel structure, word placement, storyboarding, word versus image, and page design. These elements will serve students as they develop their own story, design characters and settings, and create thumbnails for finished pages of a minicomic, web comic, or first chapter of a longer work. Prerequisites: ARTS100M and placement into ENGL110XM or ENGL110M (Fulfills Fine Arts requirement)
