Many education researchers espouse the use of different media and popular culture texts to enhance student engagement, but educators also need to see that such texts can be used in academic manners. This interview study draws research material from 12 participants in the US but focuses on one representational example to demonstrate the array of meaning making activities that are bound in reading popular culture texts, in this case, comic books. Roger, the participant, described his reading practices having critical, moral, literary and dialogic dimensions. This array of meaningful practices provides evidence of potential for using popular culture texts in substantive literacy activities.
