Graphic novels differ from comic books

Topic: 

Graphic novels seems to be getting some press lately, This One, from TCPalm.com says although graphic novels, which rose to popularity in the 1980s, share a basic element with comic books -- a sequence of illustrated picture frames with text bubbles -- these animated novels come in a variety of sizes, usually are printed on higher-quality paper, often are bound in hard covers and encompass the variety of genres mentioned above.

I think most of the earlier press was for crossover titles like Jimmy Corrigan or David Boring or Persepolis.
Or for the much improved sales of manga in chain bookstores.
