Check out Captain America, Hulk, Ultimates and more on a brand new platform! The edifices, war machines and mobile contraptions in the book do not seem to have been assembled to follow the laws of physics, rather they operate in a surreal tradition of infernal imagery: think Hieronymus Bosch and Max Ernst. Batman has always been a widely read character in comics, and is also the one most prominently read in graphic novel form. One thing Reese knows for sure: This is one Bad Island.

They may cling to the belief that graphic novels are somehow a bad influence that undermines “real reading”—or they may dismiss graphic novels as inferior literature, or as “not real books.” At best, they may regard them as something to be tolerated as a means of motivating the most reluctant readers, who, they hope, will eventually “move on” to more “quality literature.” Graphic novels have come to be accepted by librarians and educators as a method of storytelling on a par with novels, picture books, movies, or audiobooks.

We need to come up with a character (or a few characters) that can be the cast of our comics. Beaton’s second collection from her popular Web comic “Hark! My next-door neighbors (who eventually became great friends) were into comics, and they suggested I bring some with me to read along the way. Graphic novels like Dan Clowe's Ghost World (Fantagraphic Books, 1998) and Jimmy Corrigan: the Smartest Kid on Earth (Fantagraphics, 2000) by Chris Ware offer contemporary impressions of the 'coming-of-age' tale though their visually compelling formats.

For the pages with the Russian storyline, all the Ns are backwards to remind you in which country that part of the story is set.

When Fantagraphics picked up Suburbia’s webcomic, she redrew the entire 300+ pages to make it a more consistent reading experience, and it was worth the effort. While learning to read graphic novels takes practice, their artistic and literary merit makes the effort more than worthwhile. If I was designing for digital, as I have in the past, I would have been just as passionate about taking full advantage of that environment —and just as apathetic about any lazily repurposed print version.
