This is the second week in a row that a graphic adaptation of BEOWULF has made its way into the classroom. As you are probably aware, a movie adaptation is also due out next week. Movie versions of literature (traditional or comic) should spark students into a deep compare/contrast discussion in a classroom. So I am working on those reviews, and maybe more, in the coming days.

Because my university is hosting a book talk on Jewish graphic novel literature, I am reading some of the pieces. MAUS came in this week and I finished both books. Look for this review in the near future.

Here are the titles that came in this week:
  1. Beowulf (Stefan Petrucha)
  2. Maus 1 & 2
  3. Spider-Man: Legend of the Spider Clan 1
  4. Usagi Yojimbo 102-105
