If you’re looking for a story with bite (forgive me), order yourself the first issue of Chew.

The work’s structure must be manipulated to attract the reader. What were we fighting for and why did we need heroes anymore? Sam Savage's "A Cry of the Sloth" is a hilarious literary satire about an aging failed writer who has run out of illusions. Comics (graphic novels), represent a widespread and still ‘cool’ way to read that will keep the spark of enjoying reading alive. Mathematics and logic, for instance, are the subjects of “Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth” by Apostolos Doxiadis and Christos Papadimitriou. “It’s about Bertrand Russell’s inquiry of the roots of mathematics and logic,” says Katherine Keller, who writes for SequentialTart.com, a pop culture and comics website, and is a library technician for UNLV Libraries. “It’s, at the same time, a book about the nature of creativity,” Keller adds. “Most people don’t think of science and mathematics and engineering as acts of creativity, but as the creators of this story are telling Bertrand Russell’s story and his quest into logic and math, they also tell the story of how the comic is put together.” Fans of mystery novels and true crime stories will find graphic novels a particularly vivid medium for telling stories in those genres.

Social linguistics and literacies: Ideologies in discourse. 3rd ed. Also contains possibly the best pirate story ever written. "Hernandez is North America's greatest living comics creator," says cartoonist Woodrow Phoenix. "He wears his command of every facet of sequential narrative so lightly that while you are seduced by his gorgeous drawings, you don't notice how densely and subtly told his stories are." A continuation of the story of Cal McDonald, a private investigator who specializes in dealing with the supernatural world, this time there is a bit more humor added into Last Train to Deadsville than Criminal Macabre with some fantastically funny dialog.
