"Even beyond the support given to reluctant readers and English Language Learners, the benefits of graphic novels and comics in the classroom are vast. They can: engage readers who learn visually, and who are comfortable with visual media, such as video games and computer graphics
encourage readers to explore different genres, and develop an appreciation for different literary and artistic styles
teach positive messages, such as helping others, working to oneís best ability, working as a team, and persevering
open a readerís mind to new ways of storytelling, and increase their imagination, through the unique combination of text and pictures used in comics to convey the story."
