Are Comics Too Hot For Apple?

Are Comics Too Hot For Apple? | Graphic Novels in Literacy Education | Scoop.it
It’s a big deal when Apple bans a comic from in-app purchase—usually because of sexual or mature material or nudity—and it has happened to at least 59 comics this year.
Susan Timmons's insight:

It seems that most of the comics Apple chose to pull were for sexual imagery, although since they haven't been transparent it's hard to know for sure. Since the ripple effect of their decision is lower sales for the comics in question, it seems like a modern version of the Comics Code Authority -- if you don't censor your work, then we'll refuse to sell your work.

Thank heavens that sanity continues to prevail. That said, the selection of graphic novels for school libraries and classrooms needs to be guided by an informed and well-considered set of selection guidelines.

How Graphic Novels Became the Hottest Section in the Library

How Graphic Novels Became the Hottest Section in the Library | Graphic Novels in Literacy Education | Scoop.it
According to old stereotypes, it shouldn’t work—serious librarians should want nothing to do with the raucous, pulp world of comics—and for a long time it didn’t.

I too share the author's ire that we are still having to defend the use of comics in the classroom. The theory is that things have changed - both the comics and the classrooms. In practice, however, we still have a lot to do in the classroom in terms of inviting the comics medium in.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, June 29, 2013 1:09 AM

I am excited by this. I was considering it for our yeaschool lass as we are a boys' school. I am very interested to see how students respond. It looks like a text the boys, who have very good visual literacy, would like. I did canvas it in class and the response was positive. As we are a new school we are fortunate in that we can choose texts that best support our own students. An opportunity not always available in some more established schools where teachers may have preconceived notions about what works based on what has worked on the past. We can be a bit more flexible, and hopefully, innovative, in our approaches. The idea of a graphic novel may be more interesting. I havat taught Persepolis before and that worked well so I look forward to the chance to do it with an English class.
