Recently i have been reading more about comics and graphic novels trying to find the origins of both forms and where the two of them met and how the birth of the graphic novel has effected the comic book industry. I have found numerous sites with information but the most information and most helpful information have come from some books I have been reading. All of the books below have helped me to answer questions that i had with all approaching the area in a different way.
- The Graphic Novel, An Introduction
- The Power of Comics History,From & culture (2009 and 2015)
- critical approaches to comics theories and methods
- comics an illustrated history
- comics, comix & Graphic Novels A History Of Comic Art
