As librarians know, graphic novels are extremely popular with kids. They not only love to read them, but studies show that reading comics promotes a strong vocabulary, reading comprehension, and the love of life long reading. With the technology applications available on the Web, students can become creators of their own cartoons, comics, superheroes and more. It takes the editorial cartoon to another level. Students love working using the comic craft, too, because it gives them an opportunity to process what they are learning in a different way. With the available online resources, teachers can access practical and time-saving applications to use in their classrooms. The resources are web-based and easy to use and many allow for saving, editing and publishing at a later date and others allow for class accounts without e-mail addresses.
