Comics 202 – Into the Weird (Autumn 2019)

comics202 slide

“Into the weird” is a wild ride into the world of comics with a somewhat niche audience. 

In this slightly more advanced course we’re going dive into the peculiar side of comics!

We’ll discuss comic genres that somehow are marginalized, have a niche following, or that for some reason seem weird to the public eye – and of course draw and create a lot. We’ll also push the boundaries of the medium and format of comics.

You do not have to know how to make comics in order to enjoy the class. No prior knowledge on “weird” comic genres such as horror, gonzo etc. is needed. 
The emphasis of this course will be on creating and creative energy. So if you want to spend some relaxing, inspiring autumn nights while enjoying and creating the peculiar comics, welcome!
