A Bounty of Great Graphic Novels for Kids

T

he children’s graphic novel category continues its robust growth, and this is reflected in our own Kids & Teen catalog; this particular issue is noticeably larger than past issues. Just a few of the genres and specific books we’re excited about this spring are listed below; but we invite you to peruse the whole catalog and discover more books that will delight the young readers you know. BEGINNING READERS Toon Books has almost single-handedly created the new category of beginning reader graphic novel. With each season they continue to innovate, and this spring is no exception. In April 2010, they release a debut author, Nadja Spiegelman, whose charming story, Zig and Wikki, illustrated by Trade Loeffler, imaginatively incorporates non-fiction facts with a fast-paced, humorous story about two alien schoolkids who experience a “crash course” in basic animal science on planet Earth. Toon Books’ outstanding website [www.toon-books.com] continues to grow, as well, with new activities and features added monthly.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND One of the most eagerly anticipated movies this spring is Tim Burton’s distinctive version of Alice in Wonderland, releasing on March 5, 2010. Some of Diamond’s publishers are rising to the occasion with unique books related to the Alice in Wonderland story. Dark Horse has the Pop Wonderland Alice in Wonderland, which is a picture book illustrated in an adorable “J-pop” style. IDW is releasing a prose edition of the classic novel, illustrated by the renowned indie comics artist Jill Thompson. And Dynamite Entertainment is producing a manga-influenced graphic novel adaptation of the book. One of the most unusual Alice in Wonderland remixes is the Hatter M graphic novel series by Frank Beddor, author of the bestselling Looking Glass Wars series.

uing Invincible Iron Man series which has been tremendously popular with teens and adults. ARCHIE GETS MARRIED!? Nobody thought Archie Andrews would ever choose between Betty and Veronica – it was the world’s most famous, long-running love triangle. But Archie Comics created a furor in Fall 2009 when they released a series of comics in which Archie did just that! In March 2009, readers will be able to enjoy the whole, stunning story arc in one book, when Archie releases the trade paperback Archie “Will You Marry Me?” NON-FICTION The comics format can be a marvelously visceral way to communicate factual information, and some of Diamond’s publishers are producing creative and timely non-fiction that young readers will devour. Speaking of devouring, one of Dark Horse’s spring releases will be Super-sized, a collection of comics “out-takes” from Morgan Spurlock’s legendary documentary Super Size Me, about one man’s epic attempt to eat nothing but McDonald’s food for an entire month. Another publisher, Bluewater Productions, has been receiving a flood of media attention for their line of Female Force comics biographies, which focus on women. In late Fall 2009, Bluewater published Female Force: Stephenie Meyer, and in January 2010 they release Female Force: JK Rowling, both of which are the first comics to examine the lives of contemporary women novelists. As always, I recommend you sign up for our school and library newsletter, www.diamondbookshelf.com. Diamond Bookshelf is a comprehensive and lively publication covering all aspects of the graphic novel publishing industry, and includes an online archive with numerous handy articles about the nuts and bolts of collecting and using graphic novels in schools and libraries. If you have any questions or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you, too!

IRON MAN 2 Another hotly anticipated movie is Iron Man 2, releasing on July 21, 2010. Marvel is publishing a broad selection of Iron Man titles targeted at a variety of age levels, from a Marvel Adventures Iron Man and Spider-man digest for the youngest readers to the contin-
