The founding editor of _SANEjournal: sequential art narrative in education_, an open-access, peer reviewed, online journal recently added to the Directory of Open Access Journals, seeks research-based and practitioner-based articles on teaching comics or with comics in every setting, from preschool to graduate school.

The editor also seeks rationales and book reviews and announces two calls:

1. The 3rd issue is scheduled for a late 2012 release and focuses on the "viewing" and "visually representing" prongs of NCTE/IRA's six-pronged definition of "English Language Arts" and their ramifications for using comics in the classroom. Submissions should be made via registering at the journal online and submitted by June 1, 2012.

2. The 4th issue is an OPEN CALL and seeks submissions on any aspect of teaching comics or with comics at any level. Submissions should be made online via registering at the journal. This issue has a tentative deadline of December 31, 2012.

Rationales are template-based statements that explore a specific graphic novel's use in the classroom. Examples are available via request or by visiting the journal online.

Reviews should be of books of comics scholarship or of books that deal with comics-and-literacy connections.
