Can comic books make a difference in people's lives? How might we use them to make the world better? Jessica Motherwell McFarlane (Justice Institute of British Columbia; Life Outside the Box) describes how graphic narratives can help people practice moving from bystanders to upstanders to stop social injustices and bullying. Megan Hoelting (Northwest Missouri State University) uses Lumberjanes to explore youth agency, analyzing comics for survival stories, mythology adaptations, and LGBTQ accounts of 'coming out.' Victoria Minnich recorded her daily observations as the only woman among male deckhands, through the visual language of comics. Rachel Branham (Marblehead High School; What's So Great About Art, Anyway? A Teacher's Odyssey) applies visual narrative in public education for 21st-century skills.
