Comic Book Guy in the Classroom: The Educational Power and Potential of Graphic Storytelling in Library Instruction
Matt Upson,C. Michael Hall
Kansas Library Association College and University Libraries Section Proceedings , 2013,
Abstract: Whereas comics and graphic novels were once derided as “debased” texts unworthy of consideration in the academic classroom, they have recently gained more acceptance as valid educational resources. In fact, graphic narratives have a long history of success in terms of instruction and engagement, stretching back millennia. Comics can be very effective in academic settings, especially in library instruction, due to their engaging and participatory nature, as well as their ability to model behaviors and imbed lessons within a greater narrative. Many college and university instructors already utilize comics in their classrooms in a variety of manners, from examining existing comics as historical artifacts to intentionally creating comics for instructional purposes and even allowing students to produce their own comics.

Revista Comunica??o Midiática , 2012,
Abstract: This paper intends to study the comics in the virtual environment. Two decades after its appearance, the webcomics are easily found on the Internet, a space that provides artists to present their work without the barriers imposed by the publishing market. Although webcomics enable the development of a language coming from the digital media, it has not yet been commercially exploited properly. This research analysis three narratives produced in Brazil (Quadrinhos Rasos, Aquarella and Pixels) and aims to understand, through them, the characteristics of this new cultural product. To carry out this work we used the applied semiotics, since comics are a system of signs organized consisting of verbal and visual elements in a complementary relationship, as well as an analysis of the constituent elements of the narrative. The survey found that most webcomics Brazil uses few resources of digital media, reproducing the conventions of print.

Abstract: this article proposes the analysis of the most recent association between political myths and comics in argentina after dictatorship, by inquiring about the erection of society and political conflict models present in speeches from this kind of cultural products. for this reason, some variables of the comic inclusion in culture and politics of a society have been considered. a research was conducted on the use of icons and cultural products by discursive agents directly or indirectly linked to the state-government, such as political parties, social and cultural movements, and publishing companies, some of which are devoted to communication. late in 2010, insertion of symbology and iconography of the main character of ''el eternauta,'' as an element of the discursive questioning of ''kirchnerism,'' is associated to a practice intended to form political and cultural identities in a context of struggles intended to impose a vision of the social world. likewise, factors of the social and historical context have been reconstructed and described that, as conditions of discourse possibility, become a key factor for understanding the use of comics as a political tool.

Abstract: from the standpoint of the libertarian poeticalness, founded on the marxist semiology and on the bachelardian imaginary, the concreteness of characters is critically questioned, particularly of those present in comics. the culture of paranoia and narcissism is, thus, studied, as in the case of batman/joker. but the humanism of a ken parker is also analyzed. the world of comics is related to the language of movies and, in the end, a reflexion is offered, one that in being deeply critical, is equally loving. within the limits of the libertarian poeticalness, of course.
