Once was poetry

Now is graphic novels. Check out Peter Schjeldahl's excellent piece in the New Yorker, in which he says that "[l]ike life-changing poetry of yore, graphic novels are a young person’s art, demanding and rewarding mental flexibility and nervous stamina."

In case you've never read a graphic novel before, I can't recommend a better book to start with than Art Spiegelman's "Maus." There's beauty and wisdom in every frame of that remarkable book.
