about this item

This volume outlines a flexible, non-exclusive prototype approach to understanding the graphic novel as a narrating genre. It details the history of the graphic novel and alternative comics; criteria for the classification of graphic novels, based on the core feature of complexity and seven graded subcategories; and the process of verbal and pictorial narration in graphic narratives in general and graphic novels specifically. Included are examples by Will Eisner, Scott McCloud, Charles Hatfield, Thierry Groensteen, Martin Schüwer, James Vance and Dan Burr, Daniel Clowes, Alan Moore and David Lloyd, Moore and Dave Gibbons, Moore and Eddie Campbell, and Hannah Miodrag.
