I will start by stating that my favorite kind of story is constantly changing but if you pushed me to pick one at this current moment I would have to say comics. The pairing of art and a novel is a fun meeting place between movies and books that are able to show the reader more than a book can in that you can see the events transpire in the art. Also comics can control what the viewer sees and feels more than a movie can in that the timing of reveals can be controlled far more in the exact placing of panels and what is in them where as in a movie the fluid nature of the medium means that hitting a reveal at the exact intended time is a little harder.
This week I set up all my accounts for this class, creating separate accounts for this class for platforms I already had. I familiarized myself with word press and slack as I am new to these programs. I’m excited for this class and the work we have coming up.
