"Unflattening" by Nick Sousanis (05:31)

Uploader: vialogues | Provider: Vialogues

Teachers College graduate Nick Sousanis has transformed the genre of comic books in his own unique way. He has helped shift its subject matter from one that has mainly been the province of larger-than-life characters in fantastic situations to the quieter realm of academic discourse. His doctoral dissertation, Unflattening, published by Harvard University Press, is a welcome addition to the comic lit canon. It provides a highly analytical slant on comic books and deepens the subject matter.
