NEW ON NINTH ART TODAY:

THE FRIDAY REVIEW: POWERS: WHO KILLED RETRO GIRL?
By John Connors
POWERS was a sensation when it launched in 2000, and picked up the Eisner Award for best new series. Does the first collection of Bendis and Oeming's superhuman whodunnit still live up to the hype? http://www.ninthart.com/display.php?article=183

COMICS ON THE CLASSROOM
By Mike Sims
If we taught comics in the classroom, would it legitimise the artform, or just chase the kids away? English teacher Mike Sims reports from the front lines. http://www.ninthart.com/display.php?article=185

Heh, heh, heh...I haven't read comics in the classroom but knowing how most kids respond to their English teachers I think I have a good idea where this is going...

I read the article on comics in schools. Excellent piece, and my "props" to Mr. Sims for his subversive efforts in bringing comics to the children. It reminds me of how I alleviated boredom in high-school by reading comics. It was higly unlikely I would go there without touting some Manga in my bag or an issue of Transmet in my last year.
