ENGL 3053 Popular Literature: Graphic Novel

Dr. Joe Hardin | TR | 11:00-12:15

 

In the last 80 years, the genre of the comic book has evolved from the superhero and classics illustrated comics of the 1940s to become the genre of the graphic novel, in which all of the various narratives available to fiction and non-fiction authors have been explored in drawing and text. While superheroes and supervillains still populate many of these novels and serials, authors of the graphic novel now explore the genres of personal memoir, biography, history, philosophy, romance, science-fiction, mystery, thriller, and adventures of all kinds through the intersection of the visual and the textual. Graphic novels now expand the boundaries of storytelling in visual, narrative, and textual expression in ways that visual art or text alone cannot do. This course will offer an examination of a wide-range of expression in the graphic novel, including cutting edge and “classic” works from American and Japanese authors. 

Degree plan: Upper level elective (Open to all students who have taken ENGL 1203 or ENGL 1233; cannot substitute for required courses in either English degree plan)
