Bits and pieces:
Detailed account of the design process for a book about Canadian artist Doug Wright.
Post from the U of M library about the cost of academic journals. The cost of journals is a hot topic, and has been for a while.
Alternative dissertations: Nick Sousanis at Columbia Teacher’s College has apparently had a comic book project approved for his dissertation. Not a dissertation about comic books, but a dissertation in comic book form. Interview here and blog here. Of note – he mentions the importance of his time in Detroit in his development as an artist.
