TBS Magazine currently features an interview with Comics Experience founder Andy Schmidt, where he talks comics, education, culture, and more!
In a feature titled Meet Superhero Educator Andy Schmidt of Comics Experience, writer David A. Tomar reflects on the evolution of comics within the larger realm of popular culture, and how innovations like Comics Experience’s online learning model contribute to that evolution.
His discussion with Andy touches on topics ranging from family matters to running for public office to the state of today’s comics industry. Andy and David also discuss the relationship between education and comics, and how the mission of Comics Experience has adjusted to fit the needs and interests of its students and community members.
TBS (for “The Best Schools”) Magazine devotes itself to examining topics at the crossroads of education and pop culture. They celebrate achievements in traditional, educational settings, but also “take time to recognize the artists, musicians, actors, athletes, authors, technologists, CEOs, intellectuals, humorists, inventors and philosophers who inspire us to greater achievement from places far beyond the halls of our schools.”
Thanks to Andy and TBS for a thoughtful, entertaining piece! Read it here.
