Comic Book Style Presentation

Graphic story telling has long been popular with children (and adults), whether the output be labelled as comics, graphic novels or Japanese manga.  It is increasingly being used in education, both as a means of presenting information to students and also by the students themselves as a means of reinforcing what they have been taught.  The students also use graphic story telling as a format for completing and presenting projects.
