While not new, graphic novels have established themselves as a notable art form over the last few decades. Since the publication of Art Spiegelman's Maus in 1991, the graphic novel format has gained increasing acceptance as a medium to tell any type of story, from social history to personal memoir, space opera, true crime and beyond.
The graphic novels in the SBU Southampton library highlight the wide variety of the form and the creative power of the authors and artists working within it.
