Known as the ninth form of art, the graphic novel is an established industry in Europe, Japan and America. Despite the huge popularity of comic strips in India, the Indian graphic novel is only now coming of age. Experimentation is one of the major driving forces of the genre. This module offers an introduction to the genre, as well as a critique.
