Graphic Novels

When people hear ‘graphic novels’ they might tend to think ‘kids’ and ‘comic books,’ but the world of graphic novels is expansive and covers a variety of genres and age-ranges. These highly visual stories are typically told in an ‘art-first’ style, creating an immersive, colorful, and often highly emotional experience. In addition to the true graphic novel, there are also trade paperbacks (serial comics reprinted in a bound form that contain multiple issues of a particular story arc) and manga (mostly Japanese comics, translated to English, and often printed right to left). Because the world of graphic novels is so large and varied, finding the right title for you may take a little more time and research, but it is well worth the effort.
