Trinity: A Graphic History of the First Atomic Bomb

Trinity: A Graphic History of the First Atomic Bomb | Graphic Novels and Comic Art in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"The months of research and testing for atomic weapons, which had started out of curiosity by the world’s most brilliant minds, led to the momentous and terrible bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This critical period in modern history is expertly detailed in Jonathan Fetter-Vorm’s brilliant debut graphic novel, Trinity: A Graphic History of the First Atomic Bomb.... Though this work stands on its own for pleasure reading, its uses could be extended to a classroom setting as an alternative text for history, English, or science classes" (Graphic Novel Reporter).

Comics are a great way to encourage children and young people to read - while some might see reading as a chore, they won't think twice about reading a comic. And it's not only because they don't have as many words: they are a truly dynamic, versatile, and exciting medium which stimulates the mind. The interaction of words and pictures in rhythmic sequences takes reading to another level.
