What do we learn about the characters and/or ourselves from this comic strip or political cartoon? If colors are available, what do they tell us about this comic or cartoon? What symbols do you see, and what do they mean? What language is used, and how can that be interpreted? As with all academic essays you write in this course, this essay should have a well-defined introduction, body, and conclusion.
