Interesting Link

September 13, 2008

I’m mulling over international relations books, after so many people asked in response to my BTT. But for now, here’s a combination of graphic nonfiction and 9/11Isn’t it interesting?

    Have you read the graphic novel version of the 9/11 report? I read it for an adolescent lit class and had some HUUUUUGE problems with it. Basically found it another propaganda tool. But anywho, I’m always interested in graphic novels and the non-fiction graphic novel is a particular interest of mine.

    Interesting stuff. I think we’re going to be taking graphic novels much more seriously five or ten years from now.

    Looking forward to your upcoming reading list.

    BTW: I’m going with Bruno.

    Right. Let’s reduce everything to a comic book. Then, maybe, the younger generation will pay attention to it.

    And, it’s good to see that slanting things to fit your viewpoint is live and well in ‘graphic novels’.

    Sorry to be so snarking, Eva. But I find the entire idea of a comic book about current events more than a little ridiculous. Have we really gotten so bad that we can’t expect people to pick up a newspaper or magazine any more? And, I’ve experiecned the lack of critical thinking amongst college students first hand. It, frankly, scares the hell out of me.

    Andi, no I haven’t. Propaganda=bad.

    CB James, it’ll be interesting to see their evolution! And Bruno?! Such a hard name for such a soft little kitty…hehe

    CJ Hill, hmmmm….quite frankly, the lack of criical thinking amongst people of all ages is a little scary.

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
