Readings for Week 3

McCloud Ch. 1 – As an avid comic book reader I value the stories and messages held within the pages of a comic. Why do you think many people do not? Is it because they are “just cartoons” or is it something else?

Berger Ch. 2 – Barthes suggests that many events; historical and cultural, are really natural phenomena, meaning they cannot be changed or altered by us. Do you agree with this and is there any way to prove it one way or the other?

Berger Ch. 3 – Has there ever been a time in your life when you felt love was a game? Why did you feel that way? Did you just feel like a piece playing out a familiar situation on a board, or was it something else?
