MIT Announces “Webcomics Studies” Department

The recent MIT lecture series starts an avalanche of critical commentary on webcomics. The groundswell of interest created by this lecture series has led to the creation of an entire new field of study. MIT is the first major university to start a department dedicated to this new field and will publish a serious scholarly journal and offer a B.S. in webcomics. Harvard, Yale, Berkeley and Portland City College are expected to follow suit shortly.

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.

  1. April Fools, perhaps, but I’m sure some psychology department could be set for life studying several comics out there…
