Michael Bitz's new book When Commas Meet Kryptonite: Classrooms Lessons from the Comic Book Project
is now available! It's a write-up of qualitative research regarding students' composition processes when engaged in the writing and drawing of comics art. Forwards by Jim Davis of Garfield and yours truly help to contextualize this work as a very important text regarding comics and literacy study. I can't recommend it enough, and if English Language Arts teachers need just one book to convince them that comics and literacy skills can combine to help students become engaged, confident, metacognitive composers, this is it!
