The new issue of Teachers & Writers magazine is out! I just happen to be the designer for the quarterly mag put out by Teachers & Writers Collaborative here in New York, and this issue is specially devoted to comics in the classroom.
Besides featuring a full-color one-pager by yours truly on the cover, the issue boasts an article by Michael Bitz, founder of the Comic Book Project; an interview with Françoise Mouly about Toon Books (with sample art by Toon Books author
!); a very cool five-page comic by Youme Landowne; a piece on poetry comics by Dave “Mr. Alphabet” Morice; an interview with Ben Katchor; and (best of all, IMHO) an inside look at how comics are infiltrating the educational publishing industry by our very own Sari Wilson! And to top it off, there’s a very nice resource list for parents and teachers interested in using comics as education tools.
This special issue of Teachers & Writers magazine is available at the T&W website for $5.
