I am a big fan of graphic novels and comic books, and firmly believe they have a place in literacy and the classroom. My friend Chuck has a great comics and comic culture blog over at WhatchaReading, where you can also find my comic book reviews.

So you’ll be seeing more guest posts, and I’d love some feedback – so speak up!
