That of course brings up....what do you consider a "comic book"? The Oscar winning Tom Hanks movie THE ROAD TO PERDITION was made from a graphic novel. Some will say - well, there's the difference, it was a GRAPHIC NOVEL....while others if presented with the graphic novel will say - hey look, a comic book.
Because they are different in tone. Tone makes the difference between a GN and a CB. That IMO is just ignorance about the genre as a whole, though I do understand their confusion in that you can buy a GN in a CB store..
