The very same Tom Devlin will be teaching a graphic novel course here at the Librairie in February 2012!! Specifically, from 6:30 to 9:30 on Tuesdays February 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th.
I've had a chance to peep at the syllabus for the class and it left me awfully excited! I think this would make the **ULTIMATE** Christmas gift for the comics nerd/cartoonist/awesome person/person-who-shops-too-much-at-the-Librairie-for-you-to-know-what-to-buy-them in your life.
