A European Comic is a comic book that generally is comprised of a graphic novel, with album length stories (ca. 60 pages). European comics can be contrasted with superhero genre and manga, which are produced and read in English speaking countries and Japan, respectively. The European genre goes from the humoristic adventure vain (in its early form) to more adult subjects.
The history of the European Comic coincides with the Franco-Belgian comics history. It started in Belgium in the 1920s, followed quickly by France. Nowadays, many other European countries have their own comics industry, like The Netherlands, Poland, Germany, Spain and Italy, amongst others.
Although a European country, the British production is not considered as a "European", since they have a specific production closer to the American genre.
