Only those who truly think outside the panel can transform such a now-mainstream method of mass communication into a truly exceptional art. The most superlative comics art is drawn from deep dark recesses, pushed to the surface by desires to express compelling ideas through words and images that would otherwise be suppressed if the form did not exist. This is, perhaps, why comics art is at least in the minds of the contributors here the most popular course in art school today, and probably tomorrow.
