Noah F. Bunyan's New comic book introduces Lightning Man, the hero that defeats evil

“Comics provide authentic language learning opportunities for all students. . . The dramatically reduced text of many comics make them manageable and language profitable for even beginning level readers,” Stephen Cary, a second language learner specialist and author of Going Graphic states when asked about the benefit of comic books for young readers.

Child author Noah F. Bunyan’s new book titled Lightning Man #1 provides the same benefit. This entertaining comic book is the first of a series that introduces a new superhero who makes sure that good prevails over evil. In this book, a villain is attempting to make an illegal weapon of mass destruction using lightning. He is stopped by superhero Lightning Man, and his dog, Lightning dog, who the villain accidentally create.

Laid out in frames, Lightning Man #1 is very easy to follow. Its amusing illustrations of super powers and battle scenes, well-written plot, and valuable lesson appeal to 1st - 7th grade students, adults who like comic series and other comic collectors.

This book will be featured at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12-16, 2011.
