Marvel Graphic Novel

    (Marvel, 1982-1990)
™ and ©1982 Marvel Entertainment Group
#1–20 are numbered. Later graphic novels are found under their own titles.

The graphic novel, some would say, is what comics were truly meant to be, and Marvel’s incarnation of them seems largely to live up to that hope. The Marvel Graphic Novels feature book-length (OK, short book-length) stories with top-notch writing, and are propelled by the visual impact of comics. Freed from the poor quality printing and length restrictions of comic books, the creative teams of a graphic novel can be truly at their best.

And their best has been impressive indeed. Early issues of The Marvel Graphic Novel series have featured The Death of Captain Marvel, the introduction of the New Mutants, and the Holocaust-like cautionary tale, “God Loves, Man Kills,” starring The Uncanny X-Men. Later issues have continued in this great tradition, proving that comic art need not be limited to the bubble-gum crowd.
