Graphic Novel madness!



I realized quickly when I was younger that I had an affinity for graphic novels.  As a former elementary teacher and comic book reader, I realized quickly that if literature was in comic form, hesitant readers might give it a try. I always tried to keep a growing collection in my classroom for these learners. We have added a new subsection to the MSMS library collection.

Many classic novels like Artemis Fowl, Moby Dick, Frankenstein, and Dracula are being rewritten in this format now and it really is appealing to our middle school students. Anime and manga are more widely recognized now due to the popularity of shows/games like Pokemon and Dragonball Z.
Awesome new subsection in library of graphic novels, anime and manga
