While the â€œgraphic novelâ€ offers the opportunity for artistic endeavors, superhero comics are still immature. The schism is a cultural quirk, but an important truth. Even as the comic medium has grown to encompass every literary genre, the superhero remains its iconic face. Idyllic and fantastic, the superhero has endured to emerge as the fuel for a multibillion-dollar media convergence.
