I didn't know much about comics going in to this class. I learned a lot about them, and Kuskin was a very energetic and dynamic speaker. I think this class would have benefited by using some of the panel format that Al Filreis' Modern Poetry class used. It's really fun to see multiple faces on the screen discussing a poem, and I think it would work even better for comics. The assignment of creating your own comic book was fun, and gave me a new respect for how much time/effort go into comics. I would definitely take another Kuskin class in the future.
I had a maybe 1 or 2 college classes that included Modern Poetry in their subject matter. But most of my knowledge has been self-learned. I was definitely among the lower have of students! Part of this is me being older and not as fresh as I used to be. This class was great. I loved it's "panel" format. It offers relief from the problem of looking at the same face, with the same voice, for an entire set of videos. It's also really fun to feel like you are part of the discussion of students/teachers in the video, and offers interesting moments of contention and humor that can't otherwise happen. I was a huge fan of this class.
