Almost Daily 1: Fun Facts

Use the internet to find an interesting fun fact about the graphic novel you are reading.  You may find a fact about the graphic novel itself, the author, the historical setting (WWII, Poland, Polish Jews,  etc.) or the back story (Wolverine, The X-Men, Stan Lee, etc.)

A tip: try to find the kind of fact that may appear on a pop up video like this one from Madonna or U2 (click on the links)
