Mack's artwork is visually stunning, involving collage, calligraphy, watercolor, oils, pencil-and-ink, you name it. Disappointed by her parents, friends and so-called boyfriends, Orange (yes, that's her name) decides to end it all by throwing herself off a building. The voter-registration efforts span from Capitol Hill to Selma’s Edmund Pettus Bridge, and many of the key players are featured here. He warns against “the assumption that it’s a simple equation of GN=YA. insisted that “the comics format is a unique and distinct reading experience” and reading comics is an acquired skill (Hunt.3. and bibliographies were published and updated. practitioners began to recognize that reading comics involved more than deciphering text embedded in word balloons.

Universal Pictures is making a Lunch Lady movie starring Amy Pohler -- just perfect! Even The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series is being turned into a set of graphic novels, with award-winning Scottish crime author Denise Mina on-board, finessing Stieg Larsson’s storytelling for the drawn page. Saga is one that I’ve been hooked on for awhile. Her avatar Minnie rockets through experiments with sex, drugs, and underground comics—all of which the adult Gloeckner illustrates with the unforgiving line of an artist trained in medical illustration.

Yoshinaga's thoughtful, poignant, and often humorous look at love, hurt, and the perils of good intentions is a must-read for mothers and grown-up daughters everywhere. Philip K Dick's Electric Ant is in the process of being adapted and is quite enjoyable, likewise the adaptation of Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep is solid if you like your sf out there. Krashen (1997; 2004a, pp. 91-110) makes a strong case for comics and graphic novels as a major underutilized genre for development of literacy skills, part of the pedagogical core of the “power of reading.” On the eve of a major conference on “Graphica in Education” at Fordham University in January 2009, graphic novelist Josh Neufeld (2009a) reflected on changing approaches to comics, graphic novels and other graphic genres within education in North America: Unlike back in my day, when the only comics in school were hidden behind my notebook during Spanish class (or when I drew my own during lunch hour), there are now official, sanctified comics-in-education programs springing up throughout the country, in schools, libraries, and higher education venues.

Graphic novels often contain more advanced vocabulary than books aimed at the same grade level, and comic books are typically written at a fourth to sixth grade reading level, which is comparable to Time magazine, young adult novels, and many adult bestsellers.
