From students and curricula to teacher preparation, comics have become a tool in all levels of education, especially in higher education. By focusing on comics as both a unique artform and accessible entrance point for considering broader cultural and social issues, college instructors are increasingly using comics in ways that contribute to student academic success. As such, the use of comics in college courses has begun to receive serious academic attention. Ryan Claytor (Michigan State University, Elephant Eater Comics), Rachelle Cruz (UC Riverside, Experiencing Comics), Jazmine Joyner (Women Write About Comics, The Comics MNT), and Ben Superfine (University of Illinois at Chicago) share the ways they use comics, superheroes, and creative projects to educate, engage, and contribute to the academic success of students. Moderated by Mark Martell (University of Illinois at Chicago).
