Pardon me while I take a moment out for a shameless plug. I’ll be teaching the class “Publishing the Graphic Novel” at NYU starting this Saturday. It’s my second time around, and I’m really looking forward to it. I can’t begin to describe how much I enjoy teaching, and talking at length about comics and graphic novels is something that I hope I’ll never get tired of.
First things first: Here’s the link if you want to sign up.
As to the class itself, what I try to do is give a primer on the graphic novel business. I’ve been reading comics for decades, and working the biz for the past ten years. I start with breaking down how comics are perceived and read, touch a bit on the history of the medium, and then jump right into the business of making, selling and distributing graphic novels.
I’m a year wiser and thanks to the great feedback from my last class, this is going to be a lot of fun. I hope to see you there!
