Believe me - the challenge of culling through and distilling the thousand-five-hundred-odd images I use in my normal <a href="http://inksnow.blogspot.com/2013/08/recap-cartoon-comic-art-class-2013.html" target="_blank">Cartoon &amp; Comic Art</a> course into a 45-minute/fifty slide show &amp; tell was almost as daunting a challenge as creating the <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkofqPTDb14&amp;feature=youtu.be" target="_blank">Overflow XXV lecture</a>.

There will be an historical overview of how sequential art evolved from comic strips to comic books to graphic novels to manga. We will meet some of the greatest creators of these works and explore what makes good graphic literature effective. We'll also look at a wide variety of classics of the genre, visit Noel Wien Library's excellent collection, and have fun doing it.</span></i><br /><i><span style="font-family: Times,&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,serif;">Instructor Greg Hill was the FNSB Public Library Director for 23 years and has a particular passion for Uncle Scrooge, who got his fortune in Dawson during the Klondike Rush.</span></i></blockquote>Thanks again Greg &amp; class! <br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ZMJUIyRTWjQ/UjEDWuCANPI/AAAAAAAAU3M/bKxV14ea3Hg/s1600/greg2.web.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="422" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ZMJUIyRTWjQ/UjEDWuCANPI/AAAAAAAAU3M/bKxV14ea3Hg/s640/greg2.web.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br /></div><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-LXaHZ8xbQP4/UjEDVRwFGTI/AAAAAAAAU3E/JP80vwTxXFM/s1600/gerg1.web.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="403" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-LXaHZ8xbQP4/UjEDVRwFGTI/AAAAAAAAU3E/JP80vwTxXFM/s640/gerg1.web.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br />A very special welcome to the students at this morning's class that I had the pleasure of speaking to as a guest of local comics enthusiast <a href="http://inksnow.blogspot.com/2011/12/books-range-ii-dipnetting-in-river-of.html" target="_blank">Greg Hill</a> for his "<a href="http://www.uaf.edu/olli/classes-and-lectures/course-descriptions/literature-language/" target="_blank">More Than Just a Comic Book</a>" course.
