  1. 1. Key information about different graphic narrative types and existing products from these genres
  2. 2. Fable A short narrative that involves a moral at the conclusion of the fable. These stories usually have animals as the main character The Boy who cried Wolf The Ant and the Grasshopper The Fox and the crow The Miser The Tortoise and the Hare The Wolf in Sheep’s clothes Aesop’s fable Aesop was a real person, but not known by many. He lived in the sixth century BC and created these fables Most of these fables are within Aesop’s fables, but also fables in their own right.
  3. 3. Analysis of Fable This fable is shorter than a conventional fable, but with the child like illustrations, this amount of text may fit the target audience perfectly. The lexis used within the fable shows it is aimed at children, however, an older child. This fable has emulated the traditional style and enforced a moral at the end of the fable.
  4. 4. Folktale Folktales are stories passed down from generation to generation. They are told differently each time to make it more interesting for following generations. The purpose of a folktale is to communicate the characteristics and the culture of the people who it originated from. These Folktales are mainly myths created by different origins of people, normally monsters and ghouls are the main characters they create in them. The man who never lied The four dragons Why the sun and the moon liv in the sky Why the Cheetah’s cheeks are stained Clever Jackal gets away The Grasshopper and the toad The origin of fire Axe murder hollow Brothers’ revenge Windigo
  5. 5. Analysis of Folk Tale The fictional names are another technique traditional folk tales use. The illustrations follow a folk tale style of made up pictures, instead of other techniques like photography. This particular example is aimed at an older children demographic because of the language used throughout this extract.
  6. 6. Fairy tales Stories that tend to be fiction, in which magic and monsters are real. Traditionally created for children. They have a lot of characters, but a simple narrative that can be followed by a child. The Red Shoes Cinderella Rapunzel Rumpelstiltskin Hansel & Gretel Little Red riding hood The ugly Duckling Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
  7. 7. Analysis of Fairy Tale Childlike illustrations suggest a young demographic is the intended demographic for this particular Fairy tale. However some lexis used in this passage of text maybe suited to an older target audience than first appears.
  8. 8. Comic books/strips Comic books are illustrations enclosed in individual dividers, which have captions or speech/thought bubbles within the slides. The purpose of the comic book is to tell the narrative through the images. Usually, but not always, films are inspired by comic books, such as: 300 Alien vs Predator Batman (various) Blade Superman Spiderman Captain America Thor Scot Pilgrim vs the world Wolverine Hellboy Iron Man Hulk Kick-Ass The League of extraordinary gentlemen
  9. 9. Analysis of Comic books The target demographic for this particular product is a teenage one, however, due to the moral filled nature of the story, a younger demographic could be considered. The slides are conventional for a comic book but the number of them isn’t. Traditionally 6 or 8 slides per page in a comic book The amount of text would also be a factor on the demographic of the comic book. In relation to other comic books, this one has quite a bit of text, so the audience will be higher.
  10. 10. Graphic Novel Very similar to comic books, in the way it communicates the narrative to it’s audience using illustrations. However, comic books are cheap and quite badly made, Graphic novels are bound like a hard back book and can cost a lot of money to buy. Watchmen Similar to comic books, graphic novels inspired films. V for Vendetta The league of Extraordinary gentlemen
  11. 11. This graphic novel has emulated the traditional six slide approach to graphic novels. However, an unconventional layout of the slides, with them not been of equal size. Graphic novels have an older demographic than the other narrative types, however, in the genre, this novel has a target demographic of older teenagers. This is due to the illustrations and the amount of text.
