Theory comix

Theory comix are illustrated texts in the form of comix, with students often casting themselves and class authors as characters pursuing a question or quest. Theory comix may contain narratives but the quest itself is conceptual, with characters offering help or presenting obstacles. The key is exploring different approaches to the quest, which may or not be resolved.
