Graphic Novels

Housmans stocks a number of graphic novels, including some classic imports such as those shown here.

"Since the days of prehistoric man, people have been telling stories using pictures instead of prose. From the cave paintings of the Cro-Magnon to the hieroglyphics of Ancient Egypt, graphic storytelling has been in use as a popular means for communicating thoughts and ideas...Today, graphic novels are becoming increasingly important in the field of comic book publishing...The time has come for mainstream public acceptance of graphic novels to take their place as valid literature"

 Stan Tychinski - A Brief History of the Graphic Novel - Graphic Novels (2009)
