The article examines the specifics of the of the graphic novel’s language by Ukrainian author Serhiy Zakharov “The Hole”, which is relevant because of the great interest of readers, writers and academia in the development of comics in world literature. The author analyses the role of verbal and graphic means of the work. Graphic novel is interpreted according to the scientific concepts of W. Eisner, J. Gardner, S. McCloud, R. Petersen, D. Stein and J.-N. Tone and others. Features of different genres synthesized in the work, namely novel, autobiography, chronicle, diary, memoirs, are revealed. It was found that the harmonious combination of text and graphic components (layout, frame, color, font) enhance the author’s picture of the world in which the characters act. We describe the linguistic features of the work, which are conditioned by S. Zakharov’s life experience in the occupied territory in Donetsk areas and which can be used in further studies of the national specificity of the graphic novel in Ukrainian literature.
