The shortest comics are called [[comic strip]]s. Strips typically narrate a fictitional humorous anectdote (using devices such as puns) in only 3 or 4 panels. Longer sequences are found in [[comic book]]s. The longest stories, the comics equivalent to a [[novel]] or [[novella]], are called [[graphic novel]]s.
 
Comics come in all kinds of [[genre]]s: from Disney's "Duckville" universe to [[superhero]] comics, from [[sci-fi]] to [[erotic]] adult comics.
