Abstract
Several attributes have been used to label or legitimize the graphic novel as a relative of the comic book family. However, as single attributes, they are generally too blurry to cogently categorize certain long-form graphic works. The attribute ‘complexity’ bears enough potential to do so in the form of a typology, a graph functioning on two axes: horizontally, through a scalar continuum with the traditional (and possibly lengthy) comic book on the one extreme end and the graphic novel on the other; vertically, through a total of seven parameters which represent single aspects specifying graphic works by degree. Such a typology allows exclusive category assignments (e.g. ‘graphic novel and not comic book’) as well as differentiating assessments (‘rather/not a traditional comic book/graphic novel’).
