Graphic novels are enjoyable to read because it can connect various cultures and generations to speak about their superheroes, an author’s memory, and the visual of it. Most people can relate to any hero and what they represent to them from seeing justice happen, forming romantic relationships, and experiencing adversity. Comic book can teach people about history and gender identity. San Jose State University had a created a graphic novel course that centered about cultures from America, China, and the Middle East.
The comicbook course was successful because of the students wanted to excel if this was not a major or minor required class for them. Some learned how to read the graphic novel for visual for the action scenes and interpret the images in their own words. Comicbooks are valued by all age groups.
As a comic reader, I haven’t read these type of stories for the themes, capture the emotions of the characters, and the visuals. Graphic novels attract me because of the heroism that the characters displayed, their strength, and their motivation to protect people. Comic books will always hold a special place in my heart for the heroes that I grew up learning about if is Batman or anyone from Marvel. Although I don’t read comics for the visuals, it took me several to understand what the colors meant for the action scenes and wrote it effetely for an assignment. Michael Chabon’s Adventure of Clavlier and Klay is an excellent read for the comic book history, the negative criticisms from the late ’50s, and the 18th. I enjoyed reading the book because Chabon is an expert on U.S and British history.
