Chris Sebela reports on the Kickstarter Project, “The Graphic Textbook” which brings comics to the classroom. This is particularly relevant to my interests as throughout this semester I’ve been trying—through trial and mostly success—to use comics to unlock higher literary concepts, and how they can work in a core composition class or in a high school setting. The thing is, I’m largely flying blind, but I guess this Reading With Pictures organization is a great place to start. Thanks, Chris!
New Comics Alliance piece is up. I mostly started doing these as a way to get back into practice writing nonfiction and to get over my initial reluctance over Kickstarter as a thing and possibly support things that I think are worth supporting. If I’ve done anything beyond that, it’s completely by accident, which pretty much defines my working aesthetic as a whole.
