    to be darker than regular comic books.  Hence, Sandman and Hellblazer are graphic novels, where Superman is a comic.

    •  It's more the format than content, actually (1+ / 0-)

      I have graphic novels with wonderfully optimistic science fiction/fantasy tales, others dark and obtuse, with many in-between.

      For example, there are graphic novels collected from mini-series or from within a particular title which were purposefully written to be collected in larger story arcs (e.g., All-Star Superman).

      Some graphic novels are published as novel-sized installments from the get-go - most of those come from Europe, Japan, etc. due to a difference in market size and expectations for that type of work.

      BTW, I'm just a long-time comics (in all forms) collector - just trying to be helpful :)
