Graphic Novels in the Classroom!

Stanford now teaches a class on writing graphic novels, and the class gets to collectively write and produce a story together! Dope. Their first project produced the novel shown above, Shake Girl, which is apparently set in Cambodia. Another example of how the graphic novel is growing in popularity and influence (it is the only form of book whose sales are actually growing right now).
