What is the state of the graphic novel and picture book in Australia? In this thought provoking article Foster explores the current tendency for picture books in Australia to include features that fulfill criteria that for some define graphic novels. At the same time, he argues that graphic novels sometimes contain important aspects of picture books. The nature of these new hybrids gives one pause to reconsider our understanding of what is and what is not a picture book.
