WARNING: GRAPHIC POST

Very graphic. So graphic in fact because I’m talking about

kaboomGRAPHIC NOVELS!

Aren’t I clever?

… Moving on!

In any case, I really enjoyed my class on graphic novels this semester. I mean, my eyes were really opened up about them as a medium. 

bang_soundeffect_bang_vintage_comic_book_sound_effect-1979pxI’d always thought graphic novels and comics were about superheroes, or were those list three to six paneled strips you saw in the news paper. Honestly, I’d never thought about presenting a piece of non-fiction as a graphic novel because, as I hinted at, I thought of graphic novels/comics as a genre and not as a medium.

BUT NOW I DO!

kapowAnd I’m fueled by this new found love of story telling duality (because graphic novels often have more than one story they are telling at the same time) I’ve decided to partner up with some fellows and get a BookTube channel up and running that’s for getting into graphic novels and comics.

I already have a title in mind, because I like being witty and racy: Graphic Virgin.

  1. If you seriously put “ka-pow” in your article about treating graphic novels seriously, you have no appreciation for the medium and are insulting any readers you may have.
