Like any superhero, comics has a thrilling origin story. This workshop is a one-day course designed to explore how “comics” came to be. We’ll travel through history and around the world to see if we can make sense of what makes comics comics. We’ll pay special attention to the editorial cartoons, newspaper strips, and comics books from before the 1980s that laid the foundation for the artists and texts you love.
