This article offers a reexamination of the term “graphic novel,” as a term that has been instrumentalized to both ingratiate certain comics into the literary canon and perpetuate the denigration of all others. Adding to previous inquiries into the distinctions made between graphic novels and comics, which have approached the divide from a socio-historical perspective, this article posits a consideration of comics as a “minor literature.” Rather than calling for an inclusive view of comics within the disciplinary boundaries of literary studies and the academy—or for an establishment of comics studies as a discipline in its own right—this article proposes a scholarly nomadism of comics that productively works to displace the entire question of the value attributed to cultural objects and fields of study.
