Northern Kentucky University has announced that they have chosen Kabuki: The Alchemy as their 2011 Book Connection selection, which means that “incoming freshman students will receive a copy of The Alchemy at summer orientation. Faculty from a variety of disciplines will use the graphic novel in first-year courses, drawing from themes such as identity, diversity, creativity, and transformation.”

I think this is a great choice to get students thinking about who they are and what they want to contribute to the world. The best comic I have read in many years. Everyone should be reading Kabuki: The Alchemy.
