Center for Cartoon Studies

I visited The Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont, in February. With the talent the school, which opened in September 2005, has brought together – among its students and its teachers – the future of comics likely starts here. Where else have so many cartoonists been brought together for so long to think about and rethink the medium?
