The idea of changing things up with a comic book was fun. It's illustrations and storyline were cute but I got lost reading it more than once. I got confused at times with what was going on because of the comic strip layout of the story. To make things worse the whole time I was reading it I was thinking to myself, "how am I going to use this book as a reference for a lesson?" As discussed in class some people are slow to warm up to comics if they didn't experience them as a child and I think I am one of those people. I loved the Archie comics when I was younger but they probably wouldn't hold my interest now. I can't put my finger on exactly why; I know it must do with the layout, maybe its just too chaotic for me.
