Comic Book Club
Staff: Mr. Hogya & Mr. Lee

The purpose of this course is to develop students’ understanding of the nature and value of comics in society, as they relate to both recreation and education. These goals will be accomplished by the study of both fiction and non-fiction texts related to the genre.

From the basic reading of historical and modern comic books, to more advanced textbooks modeling the creation of comics, the course proceeds from the analysis and study of comics to the creation of original materials. Student groups will be responsible for the inception, drafting, construction, and digitization of an original comic series, totaling a minimum of three issues. Student conceived comics will be created under the theme of “Inspiration”, and will be distributed to the Ryan school community when completed.

In addition to creating visual art through drawing and digital methods, Comic Book Club members will be instructed in and utilize the skill of plotline creation, storyboarding, concept art, and writing captions and dialogue
