Earlier this month, I put together a project with a partner about graphic novels for young adults.  I had a great time learning about the format and finally feel like I know a reasonable amount about these books!  The most interesting part to me was actually the history of the censorship/self-censorship of the format.  Fredric Wertham was certainly an interesting guy…  My Photoshop skills came in handy with our handout, which you can see below, and go here to see the online resource page I created to accompany the project for further exploration.
