BROCCHETTO RAMOS, Flávia; BUFFON, Eliana  and  RELA, Eliana. Reading and comics: between Shakespeare and Mauricio de Sousa. Educação. Santa Maria [online]. 2021, vol.46, e38119.  Epub Sep 19, 2023. ISSN 1984-6444.

Comic book reading, of a literary nature, contemplates several challenges to beginner readers; in this sense, educational practices should contemplate strategies of mediation that cope with the peculiarities of the genre. This article investigates the construction of a narrative: Turma da Mônica: Romeu e Julieta, by Mauricio de Sousa (2009), selected by School Library National Program of 2012 (PNBE 2012). The descriptive-analytic character predominates in this study, which contemplates visual and verbal aspects. To compose this analysis, some aspects are taken into account, such as, in the area of visuality, kinds of frames; scenarios; temporal marking; and, as for the characters, the dress of the characters is prioritized, together with the mixture between the peculiar behavior of Monica and Cebolinha, and Romeo and Juliet. The analysis is based, among others, on Eisner (2012) and points at intertextuality as a striking feature in the composition of the plot, so that the reader should be guided by the peculiarities of the characters of Shakespeare to incentivize reading the work.
