David Bouchard is considered to be Canada’s most respected and published Métis writer ref.:

I did quite a bit of research by Google-ing a lot of the costume websites. There’s a vast array of websites that contain such concise and detailed information. For example, I needed to look up what a carriage would look like in the early 1800’s. And certainly the costumes and interiors needed to be close to that time period. Lots of Northanger Abbey was set in Bath so there’s a lot of the Georgian style of architecture The Phantom was dressed in a skin-tight purple suit that covered his whole body with an opening for a narrow black mask like that of Zorro, which showed only the whites of his eyes. Falk later said the pupil-less eyes peering out from the mask gave the hero a more classical look, like Greek statuary
Instructors could certainly incorporate the text either as visual support for students after they have read or while they read the original, or for evidence in a study of literary adaptation. It could be argued that the graphic novel version, with its variations on the original text, at times takes away from the original , e.g. In 1970 the Environmental Protection Agency was created in the USA and at the decade’s end President Carter called for a limit on American consumption in his “Crisis of Confidence” speech For generations students have been slipping comic books between the pages of textbooks letting their imaginations run wild with superheroes and exotic adventures. With the growing popularity of graphic novels, reading the modern equivalent of comic books in class is no longer limited to the disinterested or unmotivated students In our next example, the abuse of the artform is even more evident. Here, on the page at the left, most of the pictures repeat the information in the prose—verbal-visual double exposure. The page on the right, however, is one of the few in the book (I might be able to count as many as half-a-dozen out of the 176, and I’ve posted two of those in this review) where pictures perform a narrative rather than a purely decorative function , cited: Satrapi couples this compelling story with her own rebellions as a child and young adult. Comic artist Eduardo del Rio (b. 1934), under the pen name Rius, inserted his own caricatures into collaged bits of wood engravings, maps, and distorted photocopies to create Cuba for Beginners (Cuba para principantes, 1969) in honor of the 10th anniversary of Fidel Castro’s rise to power Ephameron documented the debilitating effects of the illness and found a special way of translating the process into a book. She made line drawings and subsequently cut them into collages. Scenes include a weekly trip to her father by train and her father walking or later in the book, lying down. The attention of the drawings shifts from the people to the scenery and the interiors. A ceiling seems more interesting to her father than the people around him , e.g.
In Persepolis, heralded by the Los Angeles Times as “one of the freshest and most original memoirs of our day,” Marjane Satrapi dazzled us with her heartrending memoir-in-comic-strips about growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. Here is the continuation of her fascinating story. In 1984, Marjane flees fundamentalism and the war with Iraq to begin a new life in Vienna Unique, colorful costumes had other advantages for marketing, copyright, and brand identification that have kept long-john heroes returning long after the novelty has worn off That’s up to the publisher. 11:37 pm on December 9th, 2015 6:04 am on December 10th, 2015 5:51 pm on December 15th, 2015 Hi , source:! And all brought to life, Wrenchies, Shadowsmen and all in a beautiful cartoony painted style, that’s everything Rat Queens has wanted to be but wasn’t , e.g. Gaiman’s classical reinterpretations of popular Marvel franchises (the Fantastic Four, X-Men, Captain America et al) are intelligently mixed in with actual events, though thankfully the book doesn’t take itself too seriously. Began life as a dire, low-budget BBC miniseries, co-written with Lenny Henry and aired in 1996. Gaiman wrote a far superior companion novel, which was later adapted into graphic novel form by writer Mike Carey and illustrated by Glenn Fabry These simpler, more playful “Marvel Adventure” titles take the enormously popular Spidey and other Marvel heroes into exploits suitable for younger readers with minimal violence, humorous banter, and plenty of action. This collection features telepath Emma Frost, from the X-Men, plus superhero duo Cloak & Dagger and villain Tombstone. F An orphan living in the walls of a Paris train station, Hugo steals food to live while carrying on his missing uncle’s job: tending to the station’s many clocks There are an additional two books in the series, The Hundred-Dollar Robber: A Mystery With Money, also illustrated by Tintin Pantoja, and The Kung Fu Puzzle: A Mystery With Time and Temperature, drawn by Der-shing Helmer.
