I saw a mention online about a massive open online course (MOOC) for Gender Through Comic Books (beginning April 2), and it sounded interesting so I signed up. After getting the syllabus of required materials (available from Comixology with a discount), I read the first week's required reading: Strangers in Paradise Volume 1 & 2, and Rachel Rising #1. I hadn't read SiP before and was intrigued enough by the first two volumes that I'll probably get more of them. Rachel Rising I'd never even heard of, and after the first one I will have to get more, just to see how things go for her. (My husband suggested reading a wiki about it, but where's the fun in that?) There's a lot of books I haven't read on the syllabus, so the course will broaden my education on a couple of levels. Who knows, maybe I'll find a new series to follow.
