GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The Comics Studies minor is less than a year old and saw its first five graduates walk the stage in May. The program, taught by Assistant Professor Nick Sousanis, explores why comics are culturally important and how they can express ideas visually.
Rue stressed that comics represent the oldest form of human communication through pictures. She praised the comic studies students for pursuing a form of storytelling that is constantly evolving.
“You are at the forefront,” Rue told the class. “You are the ones who will break the barrier between symbolic and written language.”
