Let's try that again!

OK here it is!!!

Through the use of the terms and definitions we have on hand for analyzing the Graphic Novel, we intend to produce a detailed glossary replete with examples from the texts we are studying throughout the semester. We propose that a thorough glossary would be beneficial for the indepth analysis and interpretation of  the Graphic Novel and, furthermore,that the inclusion of visual comparisons of familiar works to expound these definitions will aid greatly in close readings of other works of a similar nature. For example, if one is to examine and define the term (and use of) Bleed and its importance  to the comic book frame in relation to how Miller uses it in Dark Knight Returns versus the way Spiegelman uses it in Maus then its importance  to the medium becomes increasingly apparent.

Let me know if this is ok.
