Anyone looking for a strong case for taking comics seriously as an art 
form should read Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics" and its 
companion volumes "Reinventing Comics" and "Making Comics".

John,

You are right; I was not commenting on what you or anyone else may see 
fit to teach you graduate students or the materials you assign them to 
read.  Speaking only for myself, the only point I tried to make was that 
Classic Comics served to introduce many young children to the joys of 
literature and paved the way for them to appreciate the real thing.  I 
don't suppose there are many young children in graduate school and I 
hope that the students who are there don't need to be so spoon fed; 
although I wonder why you have "a difficult enough time as it is 
socializing our graduate students into developing expertise in literary 
studies."

Larry

[Editor Note: As Larry observes, I was one of those introduced to the 
joys of literature though Classic Comics. Probably my second influence 
was the Authors card game. Then there was my grandmother's relating to 
me stories of Roman and Greek mythology. Hardy]
