Graphic Novels can be fiction or non-fiction and primarily use illustrations to convey the story or the information. Graphic Novels differentiate from comic books in that they are stand alone books, unlike comics which are issued in a series.

From the website: "The Comiclopedia is an illustrated compendium of over 12,000 comic artists from around the world. It is the world's largest overview of comic artists, and the brainchild of comic shop Lambiek's founder Kees Kousemaker (1942-2010) who was at the vanguard of promoting comics as art."
From the website: "ComicBookDB.com is the fastest-growing comic database on the web. The first goal of this project is to catalog every comic, graphic novel, manga, creator, character and anything else that could relate to the field of comics."
Registration is free.
Adding to the database is encouraged and welcomed!
