I had been reading and loving comics for years, but Professor Kuskin's course has taught me to appreciate a comic book as a poem, a piece of literature with a message that is expressed through specific tropes and narrative devices. The lectures analyzed in depth crucial moments in comic book history, always with an attentive and critical eye in reading the pages of comics masters. Writing the essays I was able to train my own critical understanding of a comic book page, while also improving my English writing skills. The comic book project has really pushed me to explore my creative capabilities in crafting a story and expressing it not only in words but also visually. I never thought I had it in me: I wish to recommend this course not only to those comic book lovers who want to understand comics more deeply, but also to readers in general. This course will teach you a lot about comics, literature, creativity and art.
