"Maus" Lecture Week Upcoming

We got a solid grounding in the "graphic" component of the graphic novel -- well, solid for our purposes today -- and began our engagement with Maus as it demonstrated several of the concepts presented in lecture. Of course, we still have to get at full grip on Spiegelman's work (pointedly not using the term 'graphic novel', as yet unexamined in the case) which we shall do next week in lecture.

Do bring also your Eisner text, as the two do connect and we shall see how the time goes. I am best pleased that we have begun by successfully framing the literary, visual, and intellectual background in which graphic novels both are set and would like to be set by their advocates.
