Marveling at "The Man Called Nova": Comics as Sponsors of Multimodal Literacy
Jacobs, Dale
College Composition and Communication, v59 n2 p180-205 Dec 2007
This essay theorizes the ways in which comics, and Marvel Comics in particular, acted as sponsors of multimodal literacy for the author. In doing so, the essay demonstrates the possibilities that exist in examining comics more closely and in thinking about how literacy sponsorship happens in multimodal texts. (Contains 1 figure and 13 notes.)
