ENGL 59000: Growing Up Graphically – Comics and Childhood

Long stigmatized as “kid stuff,” comics have come of age, winning critical respect as an art form. Nonetheless, graphic novels offer an unparalleled window into the lost worlds of childhood. Our reading this semester will look at kids’ experiences of sexuality, disability, war, religion, and perhaps the greatest of all mysteries: what does it mean to “grow up”?
