How Comics Work

One Book UWinnipeg


To facilitate students’ reading and appreciation of This Place, 1BUW has commissioned a 20–page comic, illustrated by Ojibwe comics creator Alice RL. How Comics Work walks students through the basic terms and concepts of comics studies in order to encourage discussion of how This Place works as a visual-verbal text.
