RT@comicsalliance: Mark Waid Announces Free 'Gender Through Comics' Online Course http://aol.it/XsXPTN
This is a free online course that will be available to anyone with internet access and is led by Christina Blanch of of Ball State University in Indiana. The course will feature highly interactive video lectures, online discussions between students, and real-time socially driven interviews with comic professionals such as Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise), Gail Simone (Batgirl) and Mark Waid (Daredevil, The Indestructible Hulk, and Insufferable). The only requirement for the class is a valid e-mail address, and the purchase of the comic book course materials if you don't already own them.

Read more here from the Comics Alliance article. The course instructor, Christina Blanch also had an interview with Wired which can be found here. Here is the enrollment link if you are interested in participating in the course. Finally a post about women's role in comics, its a pretty interesting read and something to think about while waiting for the course to begin.
I'm already sign up and received my confirmation email. Oh yeah, can't wait.
