Associate Professor of Digital Studies Zach Whalen travelled to Purdue University on Oct. 6 to present research on current approaches to using computational approaches to create comics. The paper is an attempt to show affinities between current research generative neural networks on one hand and comics theorists on the other, and to analyze the ways that computational creators (including Whalen) are attempting to overcome the medium-specific challenges that computational approaches and theoretical interpretations still have not accounted for.
