DC Graphic Novel was a series of graphic novel trade paperbacks published from 1983 to 1986 by DC Comics.

DC also published from 1985 to 1987 a second, related line called DC Science Fiction Graphic Novel. Rather than being original stories, the graphic novels of this line were instead adaptations of works published by well-known authors of science fiction. These were edited by Julius Schwartz, making use of his connections to recruit the famous authors whose works were adapted. This was the last editorial work Schwartz did before retiring.

These two series were DC's counterparts to Marvel Comics's Marvel Graphic Novel line.
