Comic Books became so popular among readers that it became hard for authors to fulfil the reading appetite of their readers. This resulted in the publication of Comic Books in full-length books. They were called as Graphic Novels.
Graphic Novels kept the feel and look of comic books while it added more angels to the stories and helped in character development. Since 1960s thousands of Graphic Novels have been published. While many borrowed the elements from popular comic book series, there were also original graphic novels penned by popular authors.

The popularity of Graphic novels further increased after they were adapted into full length feature movies. One good thing of these movies was that they kept the same style of storytelling. You might have seen movies like Sin City and Scott Pilgrim vs The World where the theme of the movie was kept in the style of a graphic novel. Directors like Robert Rodriguez, Zack Snyder, Quentin Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Christopher Nolan deserves praise for this unique style of film-making.
