Thanks for a terrific first day of class! I'm eager to meet those who weren't able to join us today. For Monday, July 3, we will continue our discussion of comics form and aesthetics. We will also begin exploring how the form can be used to address difficult subjects such as cartoonist's Bianca Xunise's first childhood experience with an black American racial slur. Please read the following texts to prepare for our conversation. I've included links to download the documents.
