Cliché itself, the degenerative metaphor of everyday language, is, Beckett recognizes, expressive of fundamental desires, fears and truths

'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I—I hardly know, sir, just at present—at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'

CFP: Sequential Art, Graphic Novels, and Comics in Education
Edited by Robert G. Weiner and Carrye Syma Texas Tech University Library
In recent years the use of graphic novels, comics, and sequential art in education has exploded. This is due not only to the boom in superhero movies that are based on comic book characters, but also to the wide literary range that graphic novels now have. There are now literally hundreds of college and university courses all over the world that are using graphic novels in their curriculum. The days when comics were just seen as children's trash, with no redeeming literary or educational value, are hopefully behind us.
