Graphic Novel (Support!) Review 282/365: Heroic Friends!

Please keep up with all of my old Graphic Novel Reviews here as I quest for 365 in 365 days! Or search #365GN on Twitter.

Hey, all! I have some cool things coming your way in April, so make sure that you are checking back every day. I appreciate you for reading.

Some folks have been asking me to update my “Helpful Links” page on this here blog.  I figure Hero Week is as good as any to do some updating; that way I can feature some cool people doing some cool things with comics in the classroom.

And while I will be cleaning that page and adding some cool links and friends over the weeks to come, I can tell you right now that two of my Classroom Comic Heroes and one heroic organization are getting the spotlight today!

The fine folks at Pop Culture Classroom are the heroes that brought a bunch of us motivated educators up and gave us a platform to share resources and help teachers engage students.  I highly encourage you to visit and click on “The Classroom” for tons of great resources including information on our lending libraries and free short comics w/lesson plans!
