Although comics have become an essential part of the university curricula, schools are still reluctant as far as the use of graphic fiction in the classroom is concerned. This book is meant to contribute to the efforts to close the gap that still exists between secondary and tertiary education when it comes to taking account of one of the most popular cultural manifestations. It will do so by concentrating on the use of comics in diverse learning and teaching scenarios at primary and secondary levels. Consequently, the present volume will provide a general introduction to the teaching of the comic medium in its own right. Most of all, it combines current approaches to EFL methodology such as CLIL and intercultural communication and how comic books can contribute to the success of learner-centred language learning.

"The chapters are written in a highly readable and knowledgeable style, and student teachers as well as teachers will surely be grateful for this teacher-development opportunity – reading scholarship in English that is highly relevant for German EFL classrooms. Consequently the volume is a must in all good teacher education libraries in Germany and beyond."

Janice Bland, Literaturwissenschaftliches Jahrbuch 57 (2016)

"In der Summe liegt ein mit Blick auf das Layout ansprechend und aufwändig gestalteter, inhaltlich-thematisch vielschichtiger und höchst lesenswerter Sammelband vor."
