Bourelle uses the case study of his advanced composition course to highlight the use and advantages of short graphic narratives in enhancing students’ reading, critical thinking, and writing. As Bourelle outlines in this chapter, his students compose both written analytical papers and their own attempts at graphic narratives, exercises which enable students to appreciate and understand the comic book/sequential art/graphic novel genre broadly, as well as gain a greater understanding of multimodal literacy. Students also learn about the short form as well, coming to understand graphic narratives as a discrete literary art form, much like studying the short story is distinct from studying the novel. Finally, by exploring multiple examples of graphic narratives, students gain a broad understanding of the variety of storytelling and illustration techniques, much more so than if they were only looking at a handful of full-length graphic novels.
