Reminders and the Toy & Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley, OK

Hope everyone is progressing well on their papers...or at least contemplating starting them soon!  Remember, the Paper Assignment is due this Friday by midnight; after that, I may have trouble accepting your paper for a grade.  Please let me know if you run into difficulties before the deadline so we can discuss it.  Remember that you have many resources on this page alone, as well as links on the syllabus to graphic novels related websites.  When searching on JSTOR for articles, don't look for the author and/or work alone; consider terms such as "graphic novels and high school," "comics and genre" or "graphic novels and literacy" to find a wide range of relevant articles.  Also, don't forget to e-mail your 6th graphic novel response template to me...the first four are already up on the blog.

Also, on a slightly related note, if you're in or around Pauls Valley over the break, make time to visit the wonderful Toy and Action Figure Museum downtown.  Though it specializes mostly in toys and action figures (including a magnificent Bat Cave full of Batman paraphenalia), the museum also has a display dedicated to Oklahoma Cartoonists, including the creator of Dick Tracy, among others.  You might find some inspiration here and your kids are guaranteed to love it!  Some pictures of our recent trip there are posted below...

  1. You would honestly think I would've been to this place by now since I LIVE in Pauls Valley, but I haven't.
