We’re looking at the evolution of the comic book medium; looking at specific books, series, and creators – but we’re also exploring some topics that you might not expect to see in a class about comic books. For instance, we’re spending a lot of our time looking at the evolution of the industry itself – exploring topics like the emergence of creator owned work & independent publishers, the shift to the direct market, and the growing importance of intellectual property within the industry. We’re also looking at the evolution of fandom – covering things such as the culture of the LCS, the convention, and fan/creator communication (the online fan community, the letters column, and the creator site) We’re also going to be delving into future of the comic book – with topics such as digital comics, comics piracy, and the future of distribution & the direct market

I’ll also be making my lecture slides available online. The column will run a couple weeks behind the class (so that I don’t go completely insane trying to keep both running at the same time).
