Abstract: Annotation The concept of style is one of the most important categories of culturology, aesthetics, art history, and literary studies. One such style is Gothic. This work explores the manifestations of Gothic in postmodernism, namely its graphic interpretation. The graphic part of the work is presented in the form of a graphic novel "For example, tomorrow" in the Gothic style. With the advent of many literary and cinematic works in the style of modern neo-Gothic or magical realism, as well as stories about the fine line between real horror and imaginary, the term "neo-Gothic" began to be widely used to explain some trends in modern culture. The revival of Gothic themes, the spread of neo-Gothic themes in postmodernism actualize the need for a systematic analysis of general and detailed in the context of the manifestation of the phenomenon of neo-Gothic, the generalization of the system of knowledge about it. The relevance of this study is due to the small study of the phenomenon of "neo-Gothic" in the graphic interpretation in modern culture, as well as the lack of common terminology. The study reveals the content of neo-Gothic in the graphic culture of postmodernism, explores the Gothic style in graphic novels and analyzes them. Peculiarities and concept of formation and visual language of Gothic novel design are determined.
