Words and Pictures: Appreciating the Graphic Novel

Check out a new Graphic Novel Course at the University of Toronto -

"Using Scott McCloud's brilliant and visionary Understanding Comics as a guiding text, we will explore what makes the comic book medium so popular and unique. A variety of examples and genres will be studied such as Herge's Tintin, Art Spiegelman's Maus, and Alan Moore's V For Vendetta. The medium of comics possesses magic and masterpieces all of its own; veteran enthusiasts and those desiring to explore a new cultural field are welcome to join us in its study. Work will consist of either analytical writing or creating one's own comics."

STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT

EA has revealed a first look at the new Battlefront game releasing in conjunction with the new Star Wars film. It's multiplayer-only, and if the graphics are indeed no-BS, real-time, then it will certainly look stunning! Sadly there are no space battles in this first release, at least not yet, no doubt something they are saving for DLC later on. But one of the new maps will be one of the locations in the film's opening!

Mr. Burns - a post-electric play


In a post-apocalyptic world devoid of electricity, a small group of survivors band together in search of food, shelter and the most precious resource of all—classic lines from The Simpsons. Part pop musical, part chilling contemporary allegory, and part Simpsons celebration, MR. BURNS is an animated exploration of how the pop culture of one era evolves into the mythology of another.
