I think one of the reasons why graphic novels
are so popular at least for me is because they’re a great way to take in a story. With my dyslexia, the type of dyslexia that
I have, it’s very difficult for me sometimes to handle a large block of text and especially
if you have page after page of large blocks of text, it can be overwhelming sometimes. But with graphic novels they take those large
blocks of text and they break them up into little panels that are very easy to digest. And when they include illustrations with the
text, the illustrations tell part of the story and they give contextual clues to the meanings
of the words. So not only is it a great way to read a story,
but it’s also a great way to tell a story.
