About the course

Digital forms of production- and publication have made it possible for anyone with access to tools and techniques to potentially reach an audience of millions. This course offers an opportunity to explore and investigate this new form of publication, by looking back at the history of digital comics, as well as shaping the future of it.

The course aims to give basic theoretical and practical knowledge of digital comics and their cultural and medial contexts. During the course, the students will study, analyse and comment the contemporary field of digital comics. In addition to this, they will create and publish digital comics of their own and read, evaluate and comment digital comics published by fellow students. Results and reflections will be published on open web forums, aimed at digital comics, and comics in general. Digital comics is a half time distance-study course. Access to a computer with Internet connection is required. The course is taught in English.
