What are graphic novel/manga ratings?

All graphic novels come with an age rating so that parents feel comfortable in knowing that their children are reading age-appropriate graphic novels, similar to the Motion Picture Association’s (MPA) motion picture content rating system(MPCRS). The main difference between graphic novel ratings and the MPCRS is that most modern graphic novel publishers have their own rating system, although they are all similar.
