Graphic novels are not exactly comic strips.
Graphic novels are "long-form work(s) in the comics form, usually with lengthy and complex storylines, and often aimed at mature audiences." (Refer to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphic_novel for more information)
Graphic novels are not always humourous. At times, they can take on a very serious tone.
Lately, I've been reading some graphic novels and enjoyed reading them.
I read and enjoyed reading these ones:
Paul Has a Summer Job by Michel Rabagliati
Paul Moves Out by Michel Rabagliati
It's a Good Life, If You Don't Weaken by Seth
Pedro and Me: Friendship, Loss, and What I Learned by Judd Winick
Do any of you Cyburbians read graphic novels?
Do you have any recommendations?
