Sam Glanzman, who passed away July, 2017 at age 92, served aboard the destroyer USS Stevens in the Pacific during WWII. As a result of his experiences, he wrote and illustrated 56 stories for DC Comics in the 1970s and two books for Marvel Comics in the 1980s.

This course will be a tribute to Mr. Glanzman, whom Doug Rose knew personally and with whom he worked on projects in the 1990s. While teaching his course “War and Literature” at SUNY Canton in the 1990s, Doug frequently assigned comic book stories by Mr. Glanzman, including A Sailor’s Story and A Sailor’s Story, Book Two: Winds, Dreams & Dragons, both published by Marvel Comics.

NOTE: Participants will be asked to examine/read example comic book pages as posted on the SOAR “Comic Book…” course page.
