Over the winter break, I planned out my presentation which is to prepare a poster board with the style of a graphic novel and to make another board with examples explaining my main poster board. The more I thought about my question, “What are the most important aspects of a graphic novel”, I started questioning what “aspect” means. Is it what adds impact to the novel? Is it part of the story plot or the style of graphic novels? Since there were so many ways to define it, I decided to pick my three major thoughts.

  1. What are the most important aspects of the graphic novel style?
  2. What are the most important aspects of graphic novels? How is it different from normal chapter books?
  3. What are the most important aspects of graphics novels that affect the reader’s understanding of the novel?

My original plan for my inquiry was to create a graphic novel of my own, but I realized I wouldn’t have time for it, and that’ll I will most likely save this topic for next year. Then, I’ll have most of my ZIP time to make a graphic novel of my own.
