What is a graphic novel?

Graphic novels can take a variety of forms. They are usually written as fantasy or science fiction but not always. They can be called graphic stories, graphic literature and comics. Graphic novels are a full-length story published as a book in comic strip format. The pictures or graphics in these novels are equally important as the words.
