This course, taught by an industry professional, allows you to get your feet wet going through the process of creating your own comic, by sketching out ideas, writing part of the script, and pitching it to your peers.

The graphic narrative was adapted from Figley’s easy reader Prisoner for Liberty. High school and college students and teachers will find these essays exciting, informative, and useful. The story of this young mutant assassin is a tragic tale of a young woman trying to come to terms with a violent past that isolates her from other kids her age and find a small piece of normalcy. And that's why it's one of my favorite series ever.

Librarians and high school teachers may want to note that Victorian Undead has the potential to energize an introduction to Sherlock Holmes for an entirely new group of readers, and might even inspire them to read a little Arthur Conan Doyle. Vertigo comes out swinging in this spectacular anthology from some of the biggest names in comics. Manga still has a following, especially among classic series like Naruto and Bleach. However, by the mid fifties, the medium suffered a setback: the anti-comic book hysteria whipped up by Fredric Wertham’s book, Seduction of the Innocent, culminated in Senate hearings on Comics and Juvenile Delinquency.

A utopian dreamer, notorious anarchist, teacher, orator and poet, she was decades ahead of her time. Storytelling is comprised of three main elements: a setting, a plot and some characters. Her progress growing into her own skin is, at times, unsettling for those around her, but watching it is enormously gratifying for anyone who felt a little like an odd duckling growing up. Each volume builds upon the previous, and continues into the following volume.

The dramatic and moving story of a schoolboy who witnesses the destruction of Hiroshima by the atomic bomb. Design by Jeremy Owen shows a surreal image of a boy reading books in a library. Students who are more skilled at text-based reading bring their literary knowledge to the table. More an experience than a graphic novel, The Joyners in 3D is something you just need to see, hold and read. There may be fewer words in a graphic novel, but how those words are arranged in comparison with the artwork carries a significance that is a valuable thing for students to learn.

But that's true of movies, TV, music, radio... and yes, books. Robinson Crusoe (1719) is much more contemporary in tone than the elaborate prose of 19th-century writers like Thomas De Quincey or Walter Pater. (Defoe’s language is not, in fact, so very simple: simplicity is itself one form of artifice.) Other writers have sought to use language for its most subtle and complex effects and have deliberately cultivated the ambiguity inherent in the multiple or shaded meanings of words.
