Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown’s Picture the Dead,  a supernatural mystery set during the Civil War,  attempts to blur the line between graphic novel and novel with its profuse use of illustration.  These illustrations have a significant impact on the reading experience because this young adult novel deals with the main character’s creation of a scrapbook to help her understand the mystery she’s investigating.
