This course, Mythology and the Movies, investigated the topic of the "Living Dead" in cultures around the world and across time. After studying the theories about the mythologies of zombies, ghosts, vampires, and mummies, the students were assigned a 15-20 page graphic novel that they had to write and illustrate. The story was set during a zombie apocalypse and was required to have a mythological theme and the narrative elements of conflict, change, and choice.
