    Third- and fourth-year illustration students learned about the art of comics from a Marvel master during workshops on Sept. 20. Adam Kubert ’81 (medical illustration) introduced students to the world of a comics artist and the complexity of telling stories panel-by-panel. Students brought their own comics depicting the story of their journey to RIT for critique. Kubert’s workshops were part of his visit to RIT for the grand opening of the Kubert Lounge and Gallery in the Cary Graphics Arts Collection within Wallace Library and a discussion about his work on the Spider-Man India series. The lounge is named for his father, DC Comics artist Joe Kubert.
