    By Eric Gordon | The Spectator

    October 19, 2009

    Students looking for something new this winter should consider squeezing a new creative writing course into their schedule.

    Alternative cartoonist Peter Bagge will be teaching a course about how to write graphic novels starting next quarter.

    Bagge, who has worked for several publications, from “Mad Magazine” to “Hustler,” discovered his true calling after seeing a Robert Crumb comic book. Crumb founded the underground “comix” movement and is renowned for his subversive critiques of mainstream American culture.
