Graphic Novels for Credit

In 2010, Playboy magazine named Adam Johnson's course on graphic novels at Stanford (co-taught with Dan Archer) one of the 20 Best College Courses in America.

From Stanford University News, Oct. 28, 2010: Last month Playboy magazine named the project one of the 20 best college courses in America, hailing Johnson and Archer as "graphic pioneers" among those who are "reinventing the classroom."

"What we're seeing is a rise in what graphic art can do as a type of activism and as an education tool," Archer told Playboy.
