Think of a comic book, with its panels of sequential art that generally incorporate text in the form of thought bubbles, voice bubbles, and captions. The inside of comic-style books and graphic novels look much like the above description. However, comic-style books are generally hardbound or softbound like picture books. They are longer than comic books but not as long as novels. Graphic novels are also available in hardbound or softbound editions but are substantially longer than comic books or comic-style books. To further confuse matters, some librarians, educators, and authors use the term “comic(s)” to refer to all three: comic books, comic-style books, and graphic novels.
