Graphic Novels vs. Comic Books
I’m fairly new to the world of comic books, and I’m really curious in the effect of distinguishing between graphic novels and comics. I have heard the suggestion that graphic novel is a gentrifying term that prioritizes one type of expression over another. Art Spiegelman, for one, dislikes the term graphic novel.
I’m wondering what people more knowledgeable than I am on this topic think about this suggestion.
