Heath (Eds.), Handbook of research teaching literacy through communicative and visual arts (pp. 586–591). Confrontation with the reality of sweatshop labour and the awkwardnessprivilege of being north of Mexico in North-America.

His The Billiard Table Murders: A Gladys Babbington Morton Mystery (1990) is certainly a visual novel; but Baxter is a cartoonist rather than a comic-book artist, and his visual pages are frozen images which highlight and comment upon the narrative action, whereas in a true graphic novel the images carry the action. Harper’s rather formulaic parable Shalmanezer, much enhanced with simply lovely art by Lance Tooks.

However, to say that in 2014 graphic novels go unappreciated would be a faithless claim, as movie adaptations of some of our favorite books have brought well-deserved attention to the medium. Once associated with superhero comic books pored over by enthusiasts, the graphic novel has come of age as an immersive story-telling device, capable of conveying profound emotions. Notice how the visuals of the comic effect any possible interpretations of what is happening.

Admittedly, some English teachers have already begun to teach graphic novels. This collection of her autobiographical works, serially published under the title "Slutburger," details her life as an artist in the heady days of the '70s, bouncing through casual relationships and drug use as a storm of weirdness swirls around her. I also use the (now out-of-print) companion CD-ROM that Art Spiegelman helped to author, called The Complete MAUS. In the first four frames there are subject to subject transitions, in which we see the girls learning how to beat themselves from four different angles to emphasize the strange nature of this event.
