Harold and Andrew's Last Day

Today we were suppose to read and discuss a graphic novel. We chose to read the graphic novel "Superman/Batman" by Jeph Loeb, Ed Mcguinness and Dexter Vines. We read through the first few chapters which introduced the characters and explain their trematic childhoods. We both agreed that we like how easy the text was to read and the graphics made it more interesting and helped keep our attention. However we found that the way the wording was organized was sometimes confusing and it took a few seconds for us to understand what was happening. We both are looking forward to next weeks pizza lunch but are disappointed that reals guys read is coming to an end!

Graphic Novels

Josh: This week, Ricky and I went through a graphic novel. We found a book called 300 which is also a very well known movie. Because Ricky loves the movie 300 he was very interested in reading this book. We found that the pictures and their backgrounds helped to establish both dark and happy moods. My favorite part was when the King, Leonidas spoke of his time in the wild when he was forced to kill a wolf.

Ricky:I didn't know that leonites was such a beast, took down a wolf , if I was there I would have freaked out and start beating the wolf

Graphic Novels (Dani and Matthew)

Hello Everyone,
Today Matthew and I read a graphic novel called "Zombies Calling." Matthew did not show much interest in this story because he dislikes zombies. He found the text a little too difficult to understand, even though he read through it well. The artwork of the story is what interested Matthew the most. This was the first time he had read a graphic novel, so it is expected that he would not be used to this type of writting.
