Peter Sanderson, a comics historian of erudite and informed lineage, writes to tell us he’s teaching a course about graphic novels and movies at NYU this summer:

I will be teaching “The Graphic Novel and Cinema,” a course that compares movies to the comics in which they are based–including works by Eisner, Lee and Kirby, Miller, Moore and Pekar–at New York University’s chool of Continuing and Professional Studies this summer, starting May 27. But only if enough people sign up for the course! Each session of the course will incude a film screening as well as a discussion of the relationship between the film and the original comics.
