    The Graphic Novel 

    What makes a book a graphic novel? A graphic novel is the unique literal and artistic combination of text and art weaved together in a compelling way that tells the story in words and images working in unison. As a medium, graphic novels did almost $500 million in sales in 2014, and continues to grow. Graphic novels also often serve as a springboard into film and TV world as writers turn their scripts into graphic novels first to grab the attention of development executives (the old cliche is true – a picture is worth 1,000 words).
