From the Editor

On the advice of a comic teacher, I ordered (and this week received) THE SYSTEM OF COMICS by Thierry Groensteen. The book is hailed as “an authoritative exploration of how comics achieve meaning, form and function.” I am specifically interested in the segments where comics and picture books are compared and contrasted. I find comic theory pretty interesting. So look for a review of THE SYSTEM OF COMICS to come along one of these days (hopefully at the end of the summer, but I promise nothing).

These comics came into the Classroom this week:
  1. Batman: The Brave and the Bold #5
  2. Previews #249
  3. Graphic Classics Vol. 17: Science Fiction Classics (now in color)
  4. Sonic Universe: The Shadow Saga #4 (of 4)
  5. The Stand: American Nightmares #3 (of 5)
  6. The System of Comics
  7. Usagi Yojimbo #120
  8. Wolverine: Old Man Logan #72
