3. "Graphic novel" gimmee a break, fancy name for a comic book. Self-important.
It refers to the collected editions (which are technically trade paperbacks; graphic novels are all-original material; but those two terms are usually used interchangeably); and, sure, it's meant to avoid the connotations a lot of people assign to "comic book", ie, not to be taken seriously.

As to the trailer, looks pretty good. I really like the rendering of Doctor Manhattan; the ethereal blue glow isn't what I pictured based on the comic, but it makes a lot of sense.

The Batman-esque redesign of Nite Owl works pretty well, I think.
