Additional Course Details: 

From the medium's origin in the Early 20th century's interwar years, comic books have allowed minority and under-represented communities to make their voices heard and their stories told. Starting with the 1938 debut of Superman - a literal alien adopted by prototypical heartland Americans - immigrants, religious and ethnic minorities, and women have found colorful and fantastical ways to share their experiences. This course will explore the creative expression of some of those other voices of comic books.
