What is the revolutionary potential of comics as a medium?

Hello classmates, professors, and visitors!

As the culmination of The Story of Evolution and the Evolution of Stories, I have created a comic in dialogue with Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics that is meant to complement his work by both demonstrating how his ideas are useful and also highlighting some things that he left out of his theory of comics as a revolutionary medium.

The Evolution of Storytelling: Comics as a Revolutionary Narrative Form in Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics

In Anne Dalke’s and Paul Grobstein’s course, “The Story of Evolution and the Evolution of Stories,” we have moved on to talk about the latter half of the course title and we are currently taking a critical look at potential new ways of storytelling such as graphic novels and films. Personally I have become extremely interested in comic books as a new and evolving narrative form, and I am interested in how graphic novels and comics are becoming increasingly recognized in academia. How can the unique form of comics continue to evolve to create space for newer and more exciting ways of storytelling?
