North American comics have seen tremendous growth in artisan production, a process that has gone hand in hand with the elevation of comics creators to the status of auteurs. Combining computational analysis with cultural sociology, this essay aims to better understand the rise of the graphic novel as an emergent literary genre and offers an alternative to the close readings that dominate comics scholarship. Rather than privileging individual case studies, this essay examines the strategies that have allowed artists to elevate the cultural prestige of graphic narratives and emphasizes the form’s generic and stylistic diversity.
