When I think about reading a comic book, I will go my way to go against reading comic books, because I don’t quite understand comic books. You can tell that comic books are getting popular throughout the years. When I was little I would plan on getting up and go get the Saturday paper and have my mom read the comic to me, but when I got older I really couldn’t understand how to read them correctly. Until when we had to read McCloud comic about how to learn how to read comic really help me better understand how to read comic book and help me get ready to read Persepolis.
Well today I was reading Persepolis and I could actually understand what they were talking about. I loved how the autobiography was used throughout the comic book, and it made you get a look into the life of the author. The author uses a lot of pathos for example on page 6 she says on one panel “I really didn’t know what to think about the veil, deep down I was very religious but as a family we were very modern and avant-garde.” By her saying that she using that showing that her family was not that very religious, but everywhere around her there was religion. I am so glad that I got to read this book, because it opens my eyes and it showed me different sides of the author life. It was easier for me to read after having reading it a second and understanding what the meaning was.
The only part that I still had problems with was that with how someone could understand the Iranian Revolution by reading a comic book. I still think someone should go read a novel book to better understand what they are talking about instead of reading of a comic book. I still could understand some parts, but I still couldn’t get the whole picture of the revolution. By reading a novel a person could understand what is going on and could go back in many other books and figure out different things
