Do you use comics to help your students develop reading and creative writing skills?

As a middle school library volunteer, I have noticed that the graphic novels get checked out frequently.  The English teacher part of me cringes thinking that books formatted as comics, even classics, are necessary to motivate students to read.  I did find an interesting Comic Builder featuring Lego elements.  The comic strip can have multiple pages.  When the comic strip is finished, it can be saved online or downloaded to a computer.  What do you think about using comics for reading and writing activities?  Do you use other online comic builders with your students?
