Graphic Novels have enjoyed a surge in mainstream popularity. This pictorial written genre is simply defined by many as being "lengthy comic books" or "picture books for grownups." Delving deeper, though, Graphic Novels are the home of some substantial fiction and non-fiction stories.
This Graphic Novel list is meant to go beyond the traditional "super hero" comic book and graphic novel titles which generally dominate the genre. This list attempts to explore some major graphic novel works, authors and illustrators by titles. By no means is this list comprehensive; it is meant to be an introduction to both common and obscure titles.
All books in this list which are owned by Lincoln City Libraries are hotlinked to their entries in our library catalog, so that you may check on their current availability. Some titles not owned by the libraries are included in this list due to their classic nature, or their position as part of a series. If you see a title on this list that is not hotlinked to our collection, please consider ordering it through our Interlibrary Loan department.
