Why read graphic literature? To quote my pastor: "If you want to know what's really going on in the world, read the Comics page first, then the rest of the newspaper." Editorial cartoons are also used as material for AP US History DBQs. Besides learning something or using a cartoon in a test, good graphic literature is simply good entertainment.
