In this graphic adaptation, Culbard drew Holmes’ face with such a large chin, that I found myself distracted for the first thirty pages. While Newsarama has a certain level of editorial leeway to discuss more adult-oriented topics (allowing us to publish this countdown in the first place) discussing the infamous first hook-up between Jessica Jones and Luke Cage in Brian Bendis' 2001 then mature-readers MAX series Alias is proving a little difficult.

DC introduces The Flash, a superhero who can run faster than the speed of light. Visual literacy is the reading of text and images in conjunction, and requires traditional reading skills as well as ability to read frames, gutters, speech bubbles, and other graphic novel features (Monnin, 2010). With comic books being around for so long, the genre has been broken up into eras. Add in some talk about existentialism (by the dogs) and survival (by the humans), and you get an odd story.

Graphic Novels have been used to help both children with disabilities, including dyslexia and autism. This reminds me of The Hobbit’s noir scariness or Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising uneasiness. My kids have likewise ignored the Disney and other fairly boring comic books, passing them over for the more unusual things. The anthology establishes the French-language comics tradition as one rich with representations of history and politics and is one of the first English-language collections to explore the subject.

In this book, we will explore Tesla’s childhood in Croatia, which served as foundation for the man he would become. Claudette is a dragon slayer/tom boy who brings along her younger brother Gaston (a pastry-chef-in-training) and her best friend Marie (an aspiring princess) to slay the dragon that threatens her village. But that aesthetic feels raw, and the narrative is given more power than it probably would with a more illustrative look.
