ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a graphic novels. Graphic novels have taken on subjects ranging from the Holocaust to teen friendship. American graphic novels have been around in one form or another for decades. Some say a turning point in their popularity came when Art Spiegelman won a Pulitzer Prize, the first ever for a graphic novel, in 1992, for bringing to life the horror of the holocaust with pictures and words in "Maus." Then, in 2000, manga, or Japanese graphic novels, burst onto the U.S. publishing scene, telling translated tales of romance, adventure, and politics.
