What are they?

This 2 pager by Jessica Abel called “What Is a ‘Graphic Novel’?” will really help you out. I heartily encourage your clicking. I like that Abel calls comics “a nested system” because their information is stacked. Our list of terms is expanding: “emulsion” (Brunetti), “closure” (McCloud), “iconic solidarity” (Groensteen), and now “nested system.”
