yes, Kubert's has become acredited, I was there from 81/83, and they had just become Acredited with my class.
I'm actually looking into some kind of Computor classes so I can get into anything better. My class at kubert's was still learning old school inking and all, no Putors. 2 years after I was gone they started those classes. \:\(

Oh, okay. So, your previous coursework is now too ancient. There's
something like a seven year limit on degree programs.

I prefer old school inking to most modern approaches, but yeah, you need
to use computers to make it in today's comic market. I'd take some
solace in the fact that the computer courses added to Kubert's in the
early 1980's (no offense direct toward them) would have been crude and
pretty basic at the time. You already know that stuff.

I would like to get my hands on some comic professional software, though.
Do you know which programs they use?
