The problem is that 'graphic novel' just came to mean 'expensive comic book' and so what you'd get is people like DC Comics or Marvel Comics—because 'graphic novels' were getting some attention, they'd stick six issues of whatever worthless piece of crap they happened to be publishing lately under a glossy cover and call it The She-Hulk Graphic Novel...."

In the years of Eisner’s youth, many popular cantors had recorded a folk song entitled “A din toyre mit Got,” which can be translated from the Yiddish as “A plea to God,” or a lawsuit or judgment against Him. I’ve encountered amongst friends – “Yeah, just… no” – and a lot with students as I’ve begun assigning comics narratives to my classes. “You know this book has pictures, right?” “We don’t have to call it a comic if we don’t want to?” Even Watchmen which is one of the “I don’t read comics but I read…” examples usually given was released as a monthly twelve issue mini-series.
