The result for AP students studying classics in comic book format in this
article was fascinating and the parallel with Americans burning comic books
and Nazis burning any book was equally so!

"We’re seeing a paradigm shift of people translating images more fluently
than text — think of Snapchat or Instagram. It’s a natural shift for kids
to move into the pairing of text and images because that’s what they’re
given on a constant daily basis. So it makes sense for teachers to utilize
(graphic novels and comics) more.”
