Popular among young readers, graphic novels are known for their comic format. They are generally described as “sequential art,” where a series of illustrations tell the story, but, unlike newspaper comics, they are the length of a novel and include narrative development. This exhibition features the work of Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Mark Crilley, Matt Holm, Raina Telgemeier, and Lincoln Peirce.
