I've been trying to read as many graphic novels as I can lately. It's so interesting to see the different ways writers/artists can choose to tell a story. I read a few adaptations of some of H.G. Wells' classics that were filled with the real words from the stories. It was cool to see the pictures supporting them. In contrast, Shaun Tan's The Arrival has no words. One of my classmates, Tim Martin, compared it to watching a silent movie. Stunning visuals.
