Days 25,26,27

I looked at three different graphic novel styles last week and created a Nutshell video for a sneak peek. Unfortunately, it doesn't have an embed feature, but you can view it here.

The three distinct styles:

  • An Edgar Allen Poe Adaptation  - Pit and Pendulum -This is a good retelling if you'd like to use this book in conjunction with teaching the short story. It's dark, it's creepy, basically everything an Edgar Allen Poe book should be.

  • Manga- Prince of Tennis - This manga is not something I'd normally pick up, but I enjoyed the light hearted teen banter.  I read that it is actually quite popular with girls and it was published in Shonen Jump!  This should be a quite popular book among tennis players, but you'll probably have to promote it.

  • Super hero style - Battling Boy  - This is an interesting Superman style good alien guy fights bad monsters on earth type comic story.  It's violent, it has weird monsters, and the story line is entertaining if not a bit convoluted.
