@Ijuliel Q. what's the diff bt comics, manga, anime, graphic novels, etc

4/6: Then we get into graphic novels and things get muddy. gns are also comics but i see them as borrowing from both styles. they are usually formatted like comics but start to look like the animanga style. i also read that gns tell a story in one volume but so do manga. and that comics tell it in volumes but so do manga. these are also usually in color and read L to R

LibrarianRyan You had great explanations. I think the only thing I might add is that Graphic novels are similar to comics but allow for a longer story. And/or they compile volumes of comics into one bigger collection. Usually 3-4 comics per graphic novel. 1mo
Crimson613 @LibrarianRyan thanks 🙂 oh yeah! comics are usually very short but graphic novels are probably the longest of the group. Manga now comes out in omnibus editions tho which I know a lot of people like 1mo
LibrarianRyan @Crimson613 I think for me I only like Manga omnibus editions if they are hard cover. Other wise they fall apart too easy. That being said I have had my eye on a new Death note set all in black with black spayed pages. Tempting!!!! Plus GN are get “book” where the combine the GN in to a book. I like the hard covers but not the price. 1mo

Crimson613 @LibrarianRyan for me omnibus books are iffy. If the series is available by volume I get those and if they don't, I get the omnibus. I haven't seen a lot of hardcover ones, are they more expensive than the paperback? Which are expensive already #rip. oh man I love Death Note! Will you get it? I'd also be tempted if I didn't already have the single volumes 1mo
LibrarianRyan @Crimson613 death not eventually probably. I used to buy manga for my libraries but it was always hard when books in the middle of series would fall apart and you couldn‘t replace the volume. I own so very little manga because it was hard to get in farm country but I always tried to have the most popular at my library. 1mo
ljuliel Wow, such a lot of differences between them ! You did a great job. 1mo
LibrarianRyan Btw do you know @Easytiger @GrilledCheeseSamurai and and and it‘s on the tip of my tongue who also appreciate Gn and anime? @GondorGirl likes Gn and I‘m doing her challenge this year. 1mo
Crimson613 @ljuliel thanks 😆 1mo
Crimson613 @LibrarianRyan Ohhh I don't know too many people so I'm always up for litsy ppl recs, what's the challenge? 1mo
LibrarianRyan @Crimson613 it was simple. Two graphic novels a month. I‘m also oldoing the #litsyAtoZ challenge with all graphic novels. I have a few letters I have to find. I started looking today. 1mo
Crimson613 @LibrarianRyan if they do it again next year I think I'll join, I'm doing #nfnov and a winter reading challenge in December so I'll be too busy to do something else, but I've always been curious about the A to Z challenge 1mo
LibrarianRyan @Crimson613 they are pretty fun. Usually hosted by @BookishMarginalia and @WanderingBookaneer normally you set how you will make your alphabet. I‘m doing picture books and gN 1mo

October 12th: Graveyard 🧟‍♀️⚰️ I took this last October while touring around Salem, MA. This year, you can‘t access this graveyard during October due to historical preservation. I am glad I had my chance. #ChillingPhotoChallenge #Graveyard #Salem #RIP #TeamSlaughter #Scarathlon

This can‘t be true 😟 Toni Morrison is such a influential being. My mom loves to read and introduced me to her. When she would speak she had that voice that made you want to pay attention and listen. Lord I am at a loss for words I don‘t even know what to say prayers to the morrison family friends and book lovers. Rest In Paradise Queen 😢🙏🏾 #influential #brokebarriers #strong #leader #powerful #buyherbooks #bookreaders #bibliophiles #rip

Years ago, when I read Song of Solomon, I had never read a book like it. It is still one of my all time favorite books. Toni Morrison had such a way with words. #rip

The Bluest Eye | Toni Morrison
post image

I read Beloved in Yale Summer School—Gender and Political Science class—and it changed the way I looked at the American novel. I also read The Bluest Eye in that class, and it changed how I looked at my own writing, at sparseness of word to tell a powerful gut-punch of a story.

She won the Nobel Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She was a treasure, as is her work. #tonimorrison #rip #love
