Darkness.com ☥'s curator insight, January 29, 2015 4:36 PM

Comic books are great, but the question this article poses is: "Do comic books innovate and improve reading habits for children, --do they lead to more enriching material?" I like the idea, but unfortunately, I cannot side with the idea that comic books improve the reading habits of children.


The digital generation is upon us, and video is king. Comic books are not going to pull young readers into books without pictures, --they're just a cop-out for trying to get kids to read more. There are illustrated classics already in existence, --and as cool as it is that Marvel is converting classic literature into graphic novels, is it possible that instead of introducing classical literature, we're just introducing kids to comics?

such a great resource. Graphic novels are quite foreign to me and websites like this make incorporating them into classwork less daunting.
