How to Cite Graphic Novels

MLA Style, 9th edition

A graphic novel with a single creator (i.e. same person wrote and illustrated it) can be cited similar to a print book:

Creator Lastname, Firstname. Title of Book.

Publisher/s, year of publication.

Clowes, Daniel. Ghost World. Fantagraphic

Books, 1998.

For multiple contributors, the names of any contributors “who are important to your discussion” can be included after the title with a description of their role (MLA Handbook, p. 150).

Title of Issue. Title of Series, Contributors,

no. or vol. #, Publisher/s, year.

Season of Mists. The Sandman, by Neil

Gaiman, penciled by Kelly Jones,

coloured by Steve Oliff and Danny

Vozzo, vol. 4, Vertigo, 2011.

lettered by Todd Klein, no. 3, Vertigo,
