A graphic novel may help your reluctant reader appreciate books, but it is NOT a bicycle with training wheels. It is an art form to be read and valued in its own right.
Remember, words in caption and word bubbles may not always interpret the art and vice versa. The words and images may contradict, contrast and counterpoint.
For those of you who have not experienced a graphic novel, for those who find it new and the graphics and words haphazard compared to columns of prose, it will take you a bit of time to cultivate your interest in comics, just as you will like opera the more you are exposed to it.
