Style: Hitting the (comic) books

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

ARKADELPHIA — Batman goes back to the Batcave, Superman to his Fortress of Solitude, and comics scholarship finds a haven at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Ron Wolfe writes in Tuesday's Style section.

Comics are the entire subject of some classes, and several members of the faculty go deeper than Aquaman into the kind of reading that once sold for a dime.

“We’re becoming more and more a visual culture,” says Henderson State professor of communication Randy Duncan. Comics are a way of interpreting visuals — the picture language of computer icons, for example — and “express things you couldn’t in any other medium. Also, I think they’re worth studying as an art form in their own right.”

Read tomorrow's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Style section to get the full picture.
