The Complexities and Possibilities of Visual Storytelling in Graphic Novels

A theoretical post for a change. 
I spent most of december writing my dissertation and actually quite enjoyed the process because it deals with an issue that has been bugging me for a while. 
I decided to share it on my blog and hope some people might find it an interesting introduction to the subject matter.

Abstract
The graphic novel has increasingly become subject of critical and academical debate and is finally starting to be recognised as a literary genre in its own right. There are however still lingering misconceptions regarding its form and content. This paper aims to demonstrate the complexities and possibilities of visual storytelling and how these can be exploited to their fullest effect in graphic novels.
