A warm and hearty congratulations to our very own Kom Kunyosying!

On August 11, 2011, our own Kom successfully defended his dissertation “The Interrelation of Ethnicity, Iconicity and Form in American Comics.” The several of us who made it to the defense are sure to agree with me that Kom wasn’t just pass, he did so with style and grace. His presentation worked through a thoughtful and thorough ¬†reading of Gene Yang’s American Born Chinese¬†(which we will be reading for our pre-school September meeting; more details to follow).

Congrats, Kom! When you’re a famous comics scholar, we’ll use your name on all of our literature: UO Comics Reading Group: Dr. Kom Kunyosying was here!
