ENGLĀ 343. Graphic Novels as Lit. 3 Hours.

Graphic novels have been labeled as "comics" and "pop" culture, unworthy of study; however, graphic novels are rising in popularity and prestige in this course, students will explore the evolution of the graphic novel, from its earliest forms through the present day, including stand alone novels and retellings of classical literature. Students will examine the ways in which artwork, narration, and dialogue interact to produce a hybrid piece of literature and will have the opportunity to write their own graphic novel manuscripts.
