The use of graphic novels and their techniques is becoming increasingly popular in education where a variety of new literacies are supplementing the importance of the written word.  Cubberley Library has books on this subject and a variety of graphic novels which are featured in a new guide to Graphic novels and education.  Graphic novels are being used in a number of subject areas including history with works such as Abina and the important men: a graphic history which tells the story of an African woman who sought to use the courts to free herself from slavery.
