The graphic novel seminar is taught by Mat Johnson. Students in the class read and discus graphic novels, write scripts, create a finished illustrated work (either alone or in collaboration) and learn about the comics business.
Mat Johnson is author of 3 graphic novels (Hellblazer: Papa Midnight, Incognegro and Dark Rain), 3 prose novels (Drop, Hunting in Harlem and Pym) and a nonfiction book (The Great Negro Plot).
Current students and their collaborators, Johnson, and some past students will be in attendance to discuss their work.
