It's neat work. The visual style reminds me of something but I can't quite put my finger on what: Delirium, perhaps.

Sisyphus

Ooh that's lovely! I'm not sure I'd want to get the other projects you describe though. Maybe this is why I'm not the creative and inventive teacher. I just make em write papers.

That sounds like a fascinating course SEK. Too bad I live on the opposite coast. And "Batman Is My Boss" looks pretty cool; like AHISTORICALLY mentioned it's unusual style is vaguely familiar to me for some reason...

Maybe it's as he says, and I just go through life in a state of delerium.

James T

Reminds me of Andi Watson; I slightly prefer this person though.

I'm curious, are a majority of the projects comic-book themed or are you a comic fan and thus such projects tend to be your favorites?

The trick is the Writer's Memo. They get all excited about the project, but their grade relies heavily on the rhetorical analysis of it they perform in the Memo.

It's the way the course is set up that makes all the final projects comic and/or comics-in-film related. In previous quarters, when I taught stuff closer to my dissertation, the results were far more conventional: recreations of late C19th debates about evolution and society, essays about current sociobiological material written in the style of H.L. Mencken, etc.
