The books are generally well drawn and the stories often interesting enough to keep boys reading, but there isn’t much to talk about when the book is done. Krashen (2005, p. 2) notes: “There is no current research that I know of on the use of graphic novels, but there is evidence suggesting that comic book reading can be a conduit to ‘heavier’ reading. Despite divergent histories of comic art publishing in the United States, western Europe, and Japan, in recent decades there has been an apparent convergence of publication formats: the graphic novel in the United States, the album in western Europe, and the collections called tankobon or manga in Japan.

Between the two world wars, “ambiguity” became very fashionable in English and American poetry and the ferreting out of ambiguities—from even the simplest poem—was a favourite critical sport. This basic way of storytelling has been used in various forms for centuries—early cave drawings, hieroglyphics, and medieval tapestries like the famous Bayeux Tapestry can be thought of as stories told in pictures.

He urges them to report the challenge and reach out to CBLDF, ALA, and the Kids Right to Read project. “Even if the challenge is resolved quietly and successfully, it’s important to report it to us, to the Office of Intellectual Freedom at ALA, or the National Coalition Against Censorship,” he says. “The more information we have about what’s being challenged, the better equipped we are to respond in a helpful way, and to make proactive tools.” While their visual aspect may make titles such as Persepolis or “Bone” vulnerable to challenges, that’s what also makes them essential to a school’s collection. “Today’s kids have grown up reading comics,” says Keller. “A school or library that doesn’t include comics isn’t addressing the needs or wants of their community….
