Format: Paperback
The graphic novel continues to fight for its identity as a genre that can provide as much thematic depth and artistic intricacy as any other form of literature. This book obliterates the idea that graphic novels are merely extended comics, lending well-earned scholarly legitimacy to a very young art form.

The book combines essays and case studies that demonstrate the beauty, elasticity, and expressive power of the genre. You won't find much in the way of artistic or drawing instruction, but the index provides tons of other resources for just that. Sometimes the text gets a little laborious, but the analysis is always insightful and inspiring. Plus, the layout is just what a study of graphic novels should be: paneled, colorful, and full of eclectic characters. If you are an aspiring graphic novelist, this belongs in your library.
