The International School of Comics
Who knew? They didn't even tell me!
The International School of Comics has opened in Chicago. Artists like Tom Gianni and Jill Thompson are involved and the school's curriculum seems to be organized very much like that of The Joe Kubert School that has been thriving for three decades-plus over in New Jersey.
The new school's website is right here, and over here is video of the news feature from Chicago public television that informed me of the school's existence.
