Degrassi: Extra Credit is a series of graphic novels based upon the teen drama television series Degrassi: The Next Generation. The graphic novel series is written by J. Torres and illustrated by Ed Northcott, and it is the basis for a set of Degrassi mangasodes.
Like most episodes of the show, each novel is named after a 1980s song. The storylines in Degrassi: Extra Credit are meant to cover and expand upon unseen plots and elements that have not been addressed on the series.

- Weiland, Jonah "Degrassi: Extra Credit" Graphic Novels Officially Announced Comic Book Resources (January 10, 2006): "But there’s so much more that never makes it to the screen. What happens during summer vacation? What about the off-camera, after-school lives of the Degrassi students? What are the characters’ home lives really like? What about the weeks that go by in the Degrassi world between one episode and the next? Surely, some good stuff must be going on — and the fans want to know!"
