The University of Dundee in Scotland recently launched the world’s first mainstream postgraduate degree course (an MLitt) in Comic Studies. In this weekly column, I cover the course from a student’s perspective, looking at and discussing what the term “Comic Studies” really entails…
Honorable mentions now to the books that may also be helpful, but that I don’t quite own yet: “Reading Comics: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean” by Douglas Wolk; “A Comics Studies Reader” by Jeet Heer; “Comics and Sequential Art: Principles and Practices from the Legendary Cartoonist” by Will Eisner. Sadly, a student budget can only be stretched so far, and there have been a lot of titles to get through this semester!
