Comics Links Galore

Well, I haven’t been posting much lately because I’m using all my computer time to work on my presentation for the NH State Council on the Arts’ annual Arts in Education conference.  I want to give teachers a focused list of links and resources they can use to find the comics they need.

Here, for example, are some of the resources supplied by Dr. Bell at his Maus discussion group in Peterborough last week. Dr. Bell cited two main sources:

These two lists supply many more useful links, such as:

Here are some of the research-oriented links:

There are also lots of comics review sites in the list, such as:

Now, OBVIOUSLY I haven’t crawled through every single link on each of these pages… but I’m putting them out here so maybe a few of us can do some exploring.  Specifically, I’m looking for:

  • Neurological or pedagogical research about comics and literacy
  • Lists of comics deemed “appropriate” for specific age groups
  • Anything about comics “in the classroom” or in school settings

Thanks in advance! I hope these links are useful to you, too.

And thanks especially to Dr. Bell for putting all these links together!

    This links page is helpful. Another great comic for middle school and up is Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai. It is a great way to learn about Japanese history and culture. Because, it is about a samurai, there is fighting and death, so it’s probably not for little kids. However, it has won several Middle School Library awards.
