ENGL 135 - Literature of Comic Books and Graphic Novels

Credits: 5

(H/DSJ) A survey of the rhetoric used in graphic novels and comic books with an emphasis on its representations of social issues and their place in history. The texts will include multiple authors who use comics as a medium to tell powerful stories, some of which are a very personal retelling of their own history. We will be look at the superhero genre as it is the dominant narrative used in comic books/graphic novels but will move beyond this genre towards texts that use this medium to provide powerful narratives and ideologies.
