Comic art classes

USA Today has an AP article about special classes now being expanded/started in colleges for comics artwork.

I notice they also allude to one of the biggest problems facing comics today:
Even traditional superheroes gradually have shown a darker, more personal side appealing to older readers. Many of those series have been collected into more colorful book formats and marketed as graphic novels.

But the young haven't lost interest.
Good if the younger generation hasn't lost interest, but if the big two keep on with their misperception about older readers literally wanting only darkness, and striving only to please them, then the younger generation could very easily lose interest in Marvel and DC.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
