Full-length comic books (often referred to as graphic novels) may count as novels. According to the definitions, I found online a novel is a “fictitious prose narrative of book length, typically representing character and action with some degree of realism.” Fictitious prose. Full-length comic books … I mean graphic novels, are stories of superhuman (aka meta-human) beings or aliens from earth or other planets. The most famous of these beings is a person born on a dying planet who becomes earth mightiest hero.
Character and action. That being from another planet, first appeared in the American comic book series, Action Comics on April 18, 1938. The character gained super strength when exposed to Earth’s solar radiation. He could leap tall buildings in a single bound, run faster than a speeding bullet, and is more powerful than a locomotive.
As a boy, I would read his adventures over and over and over again. I am such a geek.
Troon Brewing’s new Pale Wheat Ale, named Dog-Eared Novel, is “comforting and familiar, like your favourite book”. Like, Superman.
