Comics Encourage Reluctant Readers

comic books and graphic novels encourage reluctant readers

by Phillip Chipping

I have long believed that comic books and graphic novels are a great tool to encourage reluctant readers.  An interesting article was posted here in the Vancouver Sun today on the topic. It tells of the benefits and gives a couple of recommendations, as well.

I’d love to have you chime in with any graphic novels or comic books you know of and can recommend.  I know there is a lot of smut when it comes to this genre, especially as you get in to the stuff targeted at teenagers and adults.  So what is good?  What is appropriate?

My own boy is a very reluctant reader and this article has encouraged me to step up my search for good graphic novels.  I’ll be updating comments here as I find resources, myself.

Thanks for your help and involvement!
