Graphic novels are a popular form of narration. The story is conveyed through a series of drawn panels, rather like comic books, but having the length of a novel. The graphic format adds a richness to the story being told.
The term Graphic Novel also refers to works of non-fiction, Manga, and collected anthologies of stories such as The Adventures of Tin Tin or Asterix.
