Comics, Classes, and Lumberjanes

Paul Smith’s College Professor David Press recommends graphic novel series Lumberjanes. David teaches an English 102 class on comics on the Paul Smith’s College campus, and most of the students in that class are, like him, white male. So, as a married man, comic writer, and teacher – he feels it’s important to teach the problems of the modern comic industry. The problem is that a comic like Lumberjanes stands out in the overflowing market that caters specifically to the demographic of white males.
