Abstract
This article examines some recent graphic novels and argues that they should be called comic books. Gordon evaluates the success of different artists at matching the style of art to the subject represented, discusses the representational and narrative possibilities of the comic form, and points to some flat moments in otherwise fine historical works.

Spain Rodriguez: Che, A Graphic Biography. New York: Verso, 2008.
