Graphic Novels are novels in a comic strip format.  Weaving narrative-story telling with visual art, they fire up our imagination beyond the written text of a book. They are also the home of many famous superheroes such as Batman.  The traditional genres of action and science fiction have expanded greatly in recent times to modern themes such as a space opera or heroic fantasy saga, a detective story or a realistic life account.
