A new club looking at Manga and Graphic Novels has been set up in the library by the Librarian and an S4 pupil. The group meets every Friday lunchtime to discuss Manga and will also be looing at Anime films, and learning how to draw Manga.
We will also be shadowing the Stan Lee Excelsior Awards where we will look at and read 8 shortlisted Graphic Novela and Manga. The eight books on the shortlist are now available in the library for borrowing by any pupil whether attending the club or not.
If you read them you will be asked to fill out a simple evaluation form and give each book a rating (marks out of 5). There is also space to write a comment about the book if you wish. Forms are available from Mrs Sinclair or can be downloaded from the Resources section of the Award website.
