Unlike other books in the market, this one concentrates on best practices that expert teachers have used to teach comics in various college settings. Organized in six sections, the book begins with basic advice for beginners and moves to explain more advanced ways to use comics in courses.

Teachers who have struggled with weak visual literacy skills among students will learn strategies to overcome those problems. One method that will be covered is the creation of student-generated comics. The book actually has several student examples. Multimodal composition is explained in the book, including the basics of how comics meet these exciting new methods of writing. Additionally, postmodernism, an often-used subject around comics, is explained through graphic novels. Teachers cover the best ways to explain postmodern theories and practices through comics.

Everyone who reads the book will see the amazing potential of comics. Several writers illuminate the need for teachers in the twenty-first century to embrace graphic novels in their courses. To better everyone's use of comics, there is an appendix that contains assignment sheets for teachers to jump right into the classroom with proven exercise that work.
