    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. :p

    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...

    Mother of pearl dangle earrings on sale.

    I'm not usually into real girly stuff, but that duvet is perfect. I want one! :)

    It's from Urban Outfitters, if you're interested. I used to not like girly things at all but something changed at some point.

    I just received my delivery of groceries that I ordered online. I am quite annoyed because $19.01 of groceries have been left out (1kg of chicken breasts, 3 rolls of toilet paper and coffee). I have been given credit for the missing items and a free credit for delivery next time but I will now have to walk down to the shops and buy these things and use my cinema money to buy them.

    I have complained on their Facebook site about this.

    I've sold out and bought an iPhone. But it was only $40 with my upgrade, and the new data plan isn't much more than I was already spending. I've been playing with it for hours!

    Nice.

    I ought to get round to a new phone at some point (I like the look of the new HTCs running the new Windows on them). But every year for the past 4-5 years when it comes round to renewal/upgrade time, I always end up negotiating a lower/better monthly contract instead. I think it's now about a third of what I paid when I first got my current phone, has unlimited texts, more free minutes that I ever use, and an unlimited data plan too, which you just can't find easily any more.

    In fact, it's so cheap now, that when I next get a new phone, given that I keep each one for so long, it will a lot cheaper for me to pay full price for it, and just swap the SIM card (providing they're compatible; fingers crossed they should be) instead of actually signing a new contract and getting the subsidised phone. :lol:
