Locke & Key was stunning, a brilliant series in every respect. Topics include audiences in different countries, comparison with slash fiction, fan groups and reactions, and valences of transgressive sexuality evoked in the stories. They can teach students new perspectives on better grasping plot, character, theme and other story elements through visual cues that aid comprehension. This was Madeleine L’Engle’s fantastical story of Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, Calvin O’Keefe and the three Mrs. – Who, Whatsit and Which – who band together to save our universe.

An asterisk (*) denotes a heading that is new for the 2016 Edition. At the same time, he relates experiences by means of a physical object, which, through deft use of color, texture, and page composition, resembles an old photo album, suggesting that we are looking back through the years at an actual life. Moving walls are generally represented in years. With these Western examples and so many more, Persepolis certainly does dismiss my original views of Iran and how society functions.

This is a hefty tome for a graphic novel, nearly 600 pages in length, but Thompson’s economy of words and the conscious care he took to avoid being overly cynical about his subject matter make this a less burdensome read than you might expect. This is a one-time procedure that takes less than a minute and is done in person for the protection of the cardholder. Don't call them a genre anymore; cutting-edge graphic novels exist for everyone.

There is an image behind the panels, and it appears not only in the gutters, but in large amounts of space left un-paneled.
