Straight from CM Campbell, Assistant Professor of Comics & Narrative Practice (CCAD) here in Columbus: “We will take a look at how horror works in storytelling; exploring the visceral human response to the unknown. Using examples from literature and film for contrast, we take a deep look at Junji Ito’s Uzamaki to understand how he created the most terrifying comic.”Craig M.
