The Visual Sequence of Comics is Appealing to Young Readers 

Graphic novels (or Story Strips) are a casual mix of illustrations and text. They contain the same story elements and literary devices as narrative stories and are a different way to encourage students to practice their reading. The pictures in graphic novels are a great source for helping to teach inference. With Story Strips, readers rely on the dialogue and illustrations. They must infer what is not written.
