Kevin Degnan (Southwestern College) discusses how to integrate graphic novels in a first-year transfer-level class at a community college and presents evidence that the combination of visuals and text in comics increases student proficiency with English. Carol Tilley (University of Illinois) traces the efforts of DC Comics's "Superman Good Books" campaign of the 1930s and 1940s to encourage its younger readers to go beyond comics in order to "read a good book every month." Jeff Barbanell (Arizona State University) provides a roadmap for effective literacy instruction of English language learners through the combination of visual literacy in comics and Socratic questioning strategies.
