Generally, "trade paperback" would be the term for editions collecting multiple issues of an ongoing storyline. "Graphic novel" tends to refer instead to works that are published primarily as a bound edition in the first place, rather than after-the-fact as a collected edition. Granted, the two terms do get used interchangeably often (for one example, DC Comics prefers to refer to Alan Moore's Watchmen as a graphic novel for the added implied prestige, despite Watchmen originally being published as twelve magazine-style issues).

At the end of the day, though, really, they are all comic books, and there's nothing wrong with that. Comics are just as varied a medium as television, film, and novels in content, after all.

Amen! And add avocado green to the list.
I guess my 70's trauma lies with orange instead.
Actually, I think of both colors as more 60's than 70's. I was tired of orange by the early 70's. And I always hated avocado green.

And yet, when I saw them "comics," hubby still corrects me.

The dvd 2012 and Shelter (with Julianne Moore). Didn't watch the last one but it was a special offer and seemed kind of cool...
