In this chapter, Halsall discusses the myriad benefits to teaching graphic novels as a unique genre of literature, arguing that the graphic novel format helps transform a novel into an artistic artifact, and thus appeals in part to the needs of our distinctly visual age. With this multimedia reading experience as a foundation, Halsall discusses her use of Frank Miller’s 300 to discuss the epic genre and Alan Moore’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in engaging with Victorian historical and literary conventions, and the ways in which these readings deepen students’ understanding of and engagement with both the graphic novel format and the conventions of the more traditionally “literary.”
