    This thesis describes the origin of comics and their sub-genres and explores how the use of comic books and graphic novels can be of help in the classroom. Comics and graphic novels are not new in the world but they do not seem to have gained their status within the educational community and the reason for that is examined in this thesis. Ways to change that situation are also examined along with ways to implement the use of comic books, graphic novels and all the sub-genres of comics into the classroom and into today’s curriculum. Historical cases both for and against the use of comics in the classroom are presented and discussed. The reasons why comics should be used in the classroom are explored and discussed alongside the reasons why they may not suit all classrooms. This thesis describes the multiple ways of teaching i.e. reading and writing, speaking and listening and arguments both for and against are provided in each category. The recent resurrection of comics is also discussed and how films based on comic books and superheroes are creating a new generation of comic book fans and lovers all around the world. The thesis also discusses the possible consequences of this new wave of fans and how the resurrection may help the argument that the comic book world can help motivate students to learn. Finally, the thesis suggests ways to improve the connection between the student, classroom and the comic book in the present and what the future of comic books and graphic novels might entail.
