  • Use book distributors. Brodart has a working school librarian as the graphic novel selector.
  • Reviews in journals
  • H. W. Wilson’s Graphic Novels Core Collection
  • Listservs such as Graphic Novels in Libraries
evaluating graphic novels
Evaluating graphic novels
  • If you get a chance to read some graphic novels, check for the following:
    • How do plot, characters, and literary devices play out in the story?
    • How well are images and words integrated?
    • How clearly does the story flow through the panels on the page?
    • How well do the images convey meaning?
    • What is the quality of the artwork’s reproduction?
    • Does the artwork offer the narrative any special effects?
