In the meantime, the war between Landfall Coalition and Wreath has been outsourced to other planets in the galaxy, and the endemic people of those planets are forced to choose a side in a war which has nothing to do with them.

Finally, graphic organizers are also useful toolsfor students to review a topic, and they can be used for assessment purposes. A major shortcoming of the text is that Eisner primarily relies on analysis of action and adventure comics rather than the more mature comics that the genre now consists of, but teachers can apply the major concepts that he discusses -- narrative tools, the function of symbols, methods of sequencing and pacing, devices used to develop voice, style and tone -- to other graphic works.

Encyclopedia of Comic Books and Graphic Novels focuses on English-language comics—plus a small selection of influential Japanese and European works available in English—with special emphasis on the new graphic novel format that emerged in the 1970s.
