From the Editor

Summer approaches my friends, and so does your opportunity to build your comic library – the one to suit the unique needs of your students, classroom, grade, and subject. You do not have to have a lot of comic literature. A few will do. You can build your comic library over the coming years. We can help.

Our compilation of The Best Comics for Your Classroom (a link is also provided in the sidebar) is the perfect place to begin. From there you can review comics based on grade level and recommendation. Let us know how things are working.

Last week we published five reviews from some UTEP graduate students. We will publish the remaining five this week, so stay tuned for several new reviews.

To the list:
  1. Batman: The Brave and the Bold #4
  2. Female Force: Hillary Clinton
  3. Female Force: Michelle Obama
  4. Female Force: Sarah Palin
  5. Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four #47
  6. Thor #601

I've been lucky enough to garner reputation at my university that one of the assistant librarians (also a comics lover) is asking for my comics suggestions for the fall budget the second year in a row. Which means that when I leave here, the comics collection our library has will largely have been my doing. And your suggestions have been helpful. Nice little ego trip for both of us there :-)
