HI Jessica -

I saw your post from awhile ago asking about a short superhero graphic novel and thought I would contribute an idea, if you are still looking. 

I recently used The Amazing Life of Onion Jack by Joel Priddy with my middle school students and I think it would be totally appropriate for 9th graders, too.  The story is short - 10 pages - and requires a lot of reading skills: inference, knowledge of allusion to other superhero stories, plot structure, action = character, and irony - to name a few. At the same time, the story is simple and fun.

The story can be found in the 2006 edition of America’s Best Comics, edited by Harvey Pekar.

I hope this is helpful.

Yours,

Joan

Howdy Jessica!

Great to have you here!

Since you rock English consider joining some of the other ELA groups:
Popular Music
World Literature
American Literature
British Lit (sans Shakespeare)
Making Shakespeare Pop
Poets and Writers
Adolescent Literature
Graphic Novels
New Modern Languages & ELL
Digital Storytelling
New Media & Technology
Media Education/Literacy group
The News: Teaching With and About
Magazines 
and the new Making Drama POP! group

At the top of the group there is a little + sign similar this one in the Middle School group that says "+Join Group X." Easy stuff.

Good Vibes,

Ryan:)
