Graphic Novels

About graphic novels

Graphic novels are a format, not a genre. They are narratives, told in comic book style. They are published as a book – usually 64, 128 or 176 pages, as opposed to a collection of comic strips, which have been previously published as a periodical serial.
The term "graphic novel" was coined by Will Eisner to distinguish his book A Contract with God (1978) from collections of newspaper comic strips. He described graphic novels as consisting of “sequential art” — a series of illustrations which, when viewed in order, tell a story. Will Eisner is seen as the founder of graphic novels, and the industry award is named in his honour.
Graphic novels can be fiction or non-fiction - some libraries are calling them “graphics” rather than “graphic novels” to be more inclusive of non-fiction.
