Sorry for the lateness of this comic!

So Visual Culture this year is about as much bullshit as it's always been. I got guided into making my essay journal article format, when it really should be just a critical review. We'd have to learn a whole new writing style for the journal article stuff, when we've clearly been practicing critical review writing for the past two visual culture essays that have been crowbarred in to make the course "academic".

So yeh, I've contacted the tutor person guy (I'm not sure what his official title is) that I'm assigned to and let him know that I'm going back to doing my essay as a critical review, which I think is useful cos it means I can just focus it on what I wanted to write about rather than having to force myself to make some academic point that I don't really have any feelings behind.

For those that are curious, my essay's about the Captain America sequel. That's the one advantage to visual culture modules - you get an excuse to watch whatever the hell you want to.

Luckily it's only the deadline for the draft that's coming up, but still.
