Welcome! This is the blog for the course English 333: Comics and Graphic Novels, which is offered regularly by the Department of English at California State University, Northridge. The latest semester of the course, Spring 2014, has just started!

To find out more about what’s happening in 333 this time, see the page Spring 2014 Focus. For more particular and practical info, see the pages on the Spring 2014 Workload and Spring 2014 Textbooks.

(Students, you’ll find some of this same information repeated on our Moodle site.)

Don’t hesitate to leave comments or questions here. I, Prof. Charles Hatfield, will be checking back regularly, and look forward to your feedback. See the bottom of the page to subscribe to our updates!

BTW, I’ve left up a trio of old posts from a previous semester of 333, last spring, because I think they may still be of interest. Note the guest bloggers—colleagues and friends of mine, who kindly responded to my requests for book lists! Their posts (1, 2 and 3) are a good place to start to learn more about nonfiction comics, an area of tremendous importance and growing popularity.
