As mentioned on Comics Alliance, English professor Dr Andy Kunka has recently discovered the truth behind the term, “graphic novel.” The name and form has often been attributed to legendary creator Will Eisner’s 1978 A Contract With God, but Kunka shows that’s not the case. It’s a long read, but a very interesting one for those keen on comics history.
