earn store credit for buying graphic novels and trade paperbacks
What's a TPB?
A TPB or trade paperback usually refers to a bound volume
comprising multiple issues of a comic book. Generally the collection will comprise a
story arc, an entire multi-chapter story. The multiple volumes of
Usagi Yojimbo or Ultimate X-Men are good examples of trade paperbacks.
A GN or Graphic Novel usually refers to an original work, never before
seen in a serialized format. To confuse matters more, a GN or TPB can be a hardcover
and/or a paperback format. Goodbye Chunky Rice, Cave In and
Orbiter are excellent examples of the graphic novel format.
If all this terminology confuses and annoys you as much as it does me, just call them
what I do: books.
