COMIC BOOK CULTURE: FROM PULP FICTION TO POST MODERN LEGITIMACY


This course will run along three parallel tracks: it will examine the history of comic books and how they engaged such political issues as World War II and the cultural revolution of the 1960s; it will show how comics have crossed over into other popular media, mainly film; and it will look at comic books as a serious aesthetic medium, trying to understand them as a form of sequential art.

Antirequisite(s): The former MIT 2282F/G.
