World Comics

UCSB Library (Tower Gallery, 1st floor)
Spring 2013

World Comics exhibition graphic Comics, caricature, graphic narrative, visual storytelling – whatever we call it, this medium has compelled readers for hundreds of years. Whatever comics means to you, it is undeniably the centuries-old and still unfinished product of an intensely meaningful “dance,” as comics theorist Scott McCloud might say, between two of humanity’s most fundamental forms of communication: words and pictures.

This exhibit was curated by Art History Professor Miriam Wattles and her seminar 186RW students in conjunction with the 2013 Regents’ Lecture by Scott McCloud.
