This is by far the most helpful class I have taken in this school. Klaus is very informative and gives real work that would be applicable to in the field experiences. If your serious about Illustrating for comic books, he is the guys to get you there.

By far one of the best cartooning teachers. If you take comics seriously, then I highly recommend taking him regardless if you draw mainstream comics or not. He's honest, serious about learning, and cares.

Never dedicated so many hours to a single class before. Never improved so much so quickly.

If you're really set on going into mainstream comics, this is the class for you. He's extremely knowledgeble and extremely tough. You learn a lot but if that's not your thing don't take the class.

I went in thinking I knew a lot and left realizing how much I had left to learn. Klaus taught me so much and really put my work into perspective. His class is a must for anyone interested in storytelling or visual language. Too they don't have him teaching juniors as well

At first I hated Klaus's class, but as I look back on it now, the man taught me everything I know about comic books. He was a slave driver and kicked you in the butt to get things done, but the end results are well worth the stress. He's an amazing professor, and I would take his class again in a heartbeat.

Klaus has forgotten more about comics then I'll ever know! Great teacher, great overall experience. My one complaint was the he needed to tell the fanboys that they were in a classroom to learn, and not a convention getting their issues of "Daredevi
