Dedicated Issue: Graphic Novels

In this issue, Shelf Awareness looks at the world of graphic novels and comics, which, when bought and merchandised well, can be extremely rewarding financially and draw in new readers to bookstores and libraries. Here we offer stories about how some booksellers and librarians have made their graphic novel sections blossom. We talk about the trend of well-known novelists to collaborate in various ways on graphic novels--and hear an editor's version of the experience. Also two graphic novelists who are husband and wife tell all in a joint Book Brahmin.

This issue has been supported by Diamond Book Distributors, which represents Dark Horse, Image, IDW Publishing, Oni Press, Toon Books, Top Shelf Productions, Udon and more than 100 other houses.
