Graphic Novel and Film Comparison DUE DATES Selections Due: 2/12/2008 Graphic Novel and Film Comparison Due: 4/29/2008 For this assignment, students are expected to compare and contrast a graphic novel and its cinematic counterpart.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Persepolis, Sin City and other directly adapted graphic novels may be acceptable, but students are expected to read the specific books needed to do so.
