From the Sunday comics pages to "The Avengers," from "Tin Tin" to "Naruto," sequential art has had a major influence on cultures across the globe. To celebrate the Ninth Art, all students, alumni, faculty, staff, and nearby residents are invited to participate in the first ever April Fool's Comics Competition. The grand finalist will have their work added to the shelves of the UCSB Library.
