Transcript: California Dreamin' by Penelope Bagieu Hadley Tavernier Style of Drawing The panels of this graphic novel are drawn in a more rough art style. There are no colors besides black and white, the characters and scenery look a bit like sketches due to the visible pencil marks and simplicity. Style Compared to Other Works When compared against the other two comics I read, this one certainly has the most unique art style out of the three. It is very distinct to this particular author. One of the graphic novels, "Shoplifter" by Michael Cho, used lots of solid pink, white, and black. "California Dreamin'" has a colorful cover, but the panels inside are black and gray like sketches. Comparison Two Character Summary Characters Cass Elliot Cass Elliot Cass Elliot, whose real name was Ellen Cohen, was well known as a singer in the band "The Mamas and the Papas". She had a rough childhood due to her family's financial struggles, but she gained success with her incredible singing voice. She performed with many different bands during her career, the last one being "The Mamas and the Papas". Cass was often discriminated against due to her weight, so she had to fight hard to make it in the industry. She grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, always dreaming about being a Broadway star in New York. Denny Doherty Denny Doherty After becoming friends with Cass, he began performing with her in a band called The Mugwumps. He was a laid-back person, he continued to work with Cass in The Mamas and the Papas and remained friends with her even after the band's breakup. Cass was in love with him, but he did not feel the same for her. Structure of the Book Structure The panels are very uniform throughout the novel, save for a few pages that have no panels at all. The images are not in color, they look as if they were drawn by a pencil and nothing else. Picture My Thoughts Thoughts I like how the author wrote Cass Elliot, her jokes and sense of humor made me laugh a few times. I also really enjoyed how the start of the book is a short bit of a scene towards the very end. As you're reading the last panels, you realize that you read the same thing earlier but from a different point of view. The parts of the novel that were more grim were done very well, the drawings were usually darker and there were little to no words spoken. There were no words needed, the author was able to portray sadness and grief through her drawings.

Transcript: Cons: Sexual Stereotyping Cons: Promotion of Violence Globalization Comics "grow up" in film form The history of comic books is split up into different eras: The Golden Age (1938-1949) The Atomic Age (1949-1956) The Silver Age (1956-1970) The Bronze Age (1970-1980) Pros: Comics Help Struggling Readers Minimal opportunity for imagination False reading, it cannot be considered real literature Lack of depth exposition Comic books and graphic novels: Dumbing down the public or providing literary alternatives? A comic book is defined as a “series of words and pictures that are presented in a sequential manner to form a narrative that may or may not be humorous.” (McCloud 1993) It is thought that Europeans of the 16th century were precursors of comic books First official comic was made in 1895 Following this, comic strips became a popular part of newspapers Final Opinions: Colored Intellectual things for Adults Seen as ART 1 or 2 books / year Expensive Works Consulted “Instead of having to be a perfect independent reader, children can look at comics and see visual context,” - Prof. Claudia McVicker, Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville Creates confidence in reading Increases vocabulary through greater context Next step from children’s books Difference of Comics Japanese Comics (Manga) “Comic books have had a motivating power in literacy development for children, especially young boys, since their introduction in the 1930s.” Reading anything requires more critical thinking than just knowing what the words mean. No more wall of text Bridge between reading and a highly visual world Difference between comic books and graphic novels : Comic books are periodicals and are produced monthly, with the stories developing with each new issue Graphic novels are read like a book and complete the narrative by the end Graphic novels mirror traditional book format, while comic book are more simple and held together with staples Comics are symbolic, require visual attention, so everything based off the picture Example: The women of “Archie” o A voluptuous blonde with tight clothes (Betty) o A bodacious brunette with tight clothes (Veronica) o Token unattractive female with a flat chest and buck teeth (Ethel) Standard, superficial roles History and Why It's Important Now Pros: Comics Have Literary Value Monochrome Various genres Romance Adventure Gag & Joke etc… Monthly/weekly comic magazine Not expensive ($3~6) Pros: Comics Make Reading Interesting and Fun Difference of Comics ~American Comics~ Basically colored 75% are about superheroes Using existing superheroes, not original characters Monthly comic book Cheap ($1~3) Other Cons “’Batman’ isn't a comic book anymore. Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ is a haunted film that leaps beyond its origins and becomes an engrossing tragedy […] This film, and to a lesser degree ‘Iron Man,’ redefine the possibilities of the ‘comic-book movie.’” – Roger Ebert on “The Dark Knight” Comic book movies began in 1940s They largely disappeared until the 1970s 1978: “Superman” became a blockbuster hit and critical success Comic book movies have matured into serious fare 2000s: X-Men, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Dark Knight trilogy Graphic novels also turned into serious films Comics and Other Media “If Arkham City was a graphic novel, it would be considered a classic.” – Gamer Limit Comic book video games become respectable Improved technology, same themes Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Arrow achieve moderate success Animated comic book programs aimed at kids Gateway to more mature content?
