Dropshippers for Graphic Novels Have a Profitable Ecommerce Niche
Did you know that dropshippers
for graphic novels have a red hot and profitable ecommerce niche that is perfect for a booming home business?
Graphic novels are one of the more popular forms of reading material and considering that they’ve been that way for many years, it seems reasonable to assume that their popularity is set to wane any time in the foreseeable future.
What are Graphic Novels?
Now, you may be reading this and wondering if graphic novels are X rated erotica.
In the general way of things, the answer is no. This is a bit confusing because when you see the ratings for a movie, it will sometimes refer to “graphic” sex or violence, which would lead one to suppose that graphic novels are made up primarily of both those things.
However, that is not the case.
Here is Wikipedia’s take on graphic novels and it appears to be right on the money:
“A graphic novel is a narrative work in which the story is conveyed to the reader using sequential art, either in an experimental design or in a traditional comics format. The term is employed in a broad manner, encompassing non-fiction works and thematically linked short stories as well as fictional stories across number of genres.
Graphic novels are typically bound in longer and more durable formats than familiar comic magazines, using the same materials and methods as printed books, and they are generally sold in bookstores and specialty comic book shops rather than at newsstands. Such books have gained increasing acceptance as desirable materials for libraries, which were once ignored when titled or viewed as comic books.”
So, if you’re thinking along the lines of more expensive and elaborate comic books, you’re getting warm.
