Comic Studies: Persepolis and Fun Home

Those of you that follow my ramblings on Twitter will know that I am currently enrolled in a postgraduate degree in Comic Studies. I'm enjoying it immensely! The first module is on Autobiographix and Documentary Comics.

I'm writing about my progression through the course, and what comic studies itself actually entails for Comic Book Resources, and the third of my columns has just gone live. This week was about identity, and the set titles were Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. Women in comics!

Comics Studies: CBR Column 2

Those of you that follow my ramblings on Twitter will know that I am currently enrolled in a postgraduate degree in Comic Studies. I didn't really have any intention of returning to university until this course popped up, and I'm enjoying it immensely. 

I'm writing about my progression through the course, and what comic studies itself actually entails for Comic Book Resources, and the second of my columns has just gone live. The main focus of study that week was Harvey Pekar, the godfather of autobiographix.
