Read it in the funny papers...

I am pleased to see this article in Local News - Battle Creek Enquirer - about the use of comic art in a school setting. Since the first time I stepped into a phone booth I learn more on the history of the medium. The fact that the modern American comic emerged during the Depression Era is very telling of our collective need for hope and personal meaning.

In Dan Pink's recent book A Whole New Mind I discovered Understanding Comic Books- by Scott McCloud and Don THE IDEA GUY insisted I look at the follow up --Reinventing Comics (thanks guys!)

It is interesting the presence of super hero movies, product references and advertising. Anyone have any thoughts on this...?
