Great comics are the product of great labor. Every cartoonist learns this the moment they commit to turning their flights of imagination into carefully crafted lines on the page. We’ve been incredibly lucky to watch our students make that commitment with us here at CCA.

When we set out to create CCA’s graduate comics program, we wanted to make a space where writers and artists could come together to support and challenge each other’s work.

Rather than bend their individual voices toward a common style, our graduate cohorts push each other to follow an authentic path for their work. The evidence of their success can be found on every page herein. With their attention to craft and their sights set on pushing the boundaries of the form, there’s no doubt the future of comics is in good hands.

At the end of their final year, our students each produced a self-contained thesis project for print as well as a digital comic.
