Hey dudes and dudes pretending to be girls! ;)

I had a very interesting seminar at my university about comics. Now i have to write a term paper/essay (not sure what's the proper translation is, i study in germay) - but it's about 10-15 pages.

i can choose the topic all by myself, and i'm overwhelmed by the stuff i could do. At the moment, im reading the great "Transmetropolitan" and this would be an interesting topic - but i don't know if i can find proper literature about that.

So.. i'm asking you to help me find a topic about anything comic related... it could be the smallest detail - as long as i can find any literature about it. (In one seminar we talked 1.5 hours about the drawing of the blowing wind and the "snow-lines" in Hergés Tintin in tibet :D)

Lot's of thanks for any thoughts about this :)

Looking to fill a crapload of pages ? Two and a half words (no, not a mix between Two and a half men and The L word...) :

Marvel's Multiverse

I know, it's certainly gonna be used by others as well but hey, everyone seem to have their take on the subject :p
Working on re-uploading the FR manuals.

Sliding timelines and retcons. Someone needs to figure out how it all works.

Wow – I’m pretty sure that it was a really interesting course. I’d recommend you the topic “the reflection of the artist’s inner world in comics”. I think you’d be able to find plenty of materials for the term paper focusing on this question and moreover, you’ll be able to include your personal analysis and observations.

I have also written an essay on comic books. The first step I did was to make a list of questions and an outline.

What do you want answered?
History?
Audience?
etc..

Mine was a general essay, but it's your choice on how you write it.

Term paper/Essay about comics 1 year 10 months ago #44103

Hey, Der! I think writing about comics is appropriate nowadays, because it's been defined, that comics refer to literature, just as much as Dostoevsky's 'Crime and Punishment' or 'Wuthering Heights' by Emily Brontë (I shouldn't compare but still the point remains). So you can write about the history of DC or Marvel, for example. There are a lot of interesting topics to research in comics industry, and you actually can write even about 'Transmetropolitan'. I wish you good luck and all the best. Whether you have troubles with writing the whole paper, you can find some useful prompts and tips here papersmaster.com/tips-and-prompts/. There are many of them.

if you have time to order from libraries you could grab a copy of This book on Transmetropolitan.

If not they discussed that book a few times over at that webite with a little more academic flair than most places follow this link
