Comic & Graphic Novels
Many think that comic & graphic novels books are one and the same when there is a very clear differentiation between the two. Graphic novels are usually lengthier and much more complex in terms of plotlines than a comic book. Comic books, like Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Vol 1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli , The Joker by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo and X-Men: Messiah Complex by Ed Brubaker, Marc Silvestri, and various other writers and artists on the other hand, are basically short serialized stories, which tell its story over many issues. With comic books, the story usually unfolds over months and even years, while graphic novels can wrap up its stories within a book or two. Some of the older and more popular comic books issues are very rare and are priced in millions due to their high collectivity value.
The differentiation between graphic novels and comic books is so well distinguished among the lovers of both the genres, that they are considered to be two different mediums of storytelling. Although both of them use a combination of text and illustrations to get their message across, the actual differentiation is not in the content but the presentation.
