MAKING COMICS SC
(W) Lynda Barry (A/CA) Lynda Barry
For more than five years the cartoonist Lynda Barry has been teaching students from all majors, both graduate and undergraduate, how to make comics, how to be creative, how to not think. There is no academic lecture in this classroom. Doodling is enthusiastically encouraged. Making Comics is the follow-up to barry’s bestselling Syllabus and this time she shares all of her comics-making exercises. At the core of Making Comics is her certainty that creativity is vital to processing the world around us.

HARD TOMORROW HC (MR)
(W) Eleanor Davis (A/CA) Eleanor Davis
Hannah is a thirty-something wife, home-health worker, and antiwar activist. Her husband, Johnny, is a stay-at-home pothead working-or “working”-on building them a house before the winter chill sets in. They’re currently living and screwing in the back of a truck, hoping for a pregnancy, which seems like it will never come. Told with tenderness and care in an undefined near future, Eleanor Davis’s The Hard Tomorrow blazes unrestrained, as moments of human connection are doused in fear and threats.
