After such a strong start, it might have seemed like 2013 couldn’t get any better, but as the list of graphic novels coming in the second half of the year shows, there’s no shortage of great books for readers and sellers! Dark Horse Comics continues its winning year with the expansion of one of its best selling titles. Fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender can get all the details behind the new hit series with The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book 1 – Air, covering the first season of the smash hit Nickelodeon series. And the adventures of the original series continues in Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Search Part 2. Award winning author Brian Wood takes Star Wars fans back to the story that started it all with Star Wars Volume 1, featuring all the favorite characters from the original film. And they follow up the wildly successful Hyrule Historia with art books for the video games Remember Me, Akaneiro, and The Last of Us. The success of IDW Publishing’s My Little Pony graphic novel proved that Equestria is the place to be, and the publisher is offering readers another visit with Volume 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, along with a digest-sized edition of the first volume and the first volume of My Little Pony Animated. The Last of the Time Lords takes center stage again, in his current incarnation with Doctor Who Series 3 Volume 1, and previous with Doctor Who Series 1: Winter’s Dawn, Season’s End – featuring the ever-popular Tenth Doctor – and Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time Volume 2, celebrating the show’s 50th anniversary with by spotlighting each Doctor. Image Comics continues to prove that new and unique voices can also provide strong sales, with the release of Saga Volume 2, the latest in the New York Times bestselling sci-fi drama series, and Fatale Volume 3, the hit horror/crime mash-up. Also offered is Nowhere Men Volume 1, the series from Image publisher Eric Stephenson which shows us “Science is the new rock and roll!” and Peter Panzerfaust Volume 2, the continuing story of Peter Pan as set in WWII. One of the biggest graphic novel events of the year comes in August, with Top Shelf Productions’ release of March Book One, the memoir of Congressman John Lewis chronicling his days as a pioneer in the Civil Rights Movement. Archaia Entertainment re-imagines a classic manga title for a modern Western audience with Cyborg 009, while Dynamite Entertainment re-introduces readers to Garth Ennis’ controversial and popular superhero send-up with The Boys Omnibus Volume 1. Oni Press’ supernatural western (and soon-to-be television show) continues in The Sixth Gun Volume 5, while Hermes Press reprints a classic American strip with Walt Kelly’s Pogo: The Complete Dell Comics Volume 1. And comic appraisers will find the latest information on pricing and more in The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #43. With all of the great titles on deck for the second half of the year, 2013 should prove to be an amazing year for graphic novels, both in quality and – even better – sales. All my best—

The distant future war continues! Old man Prophet is awake now and searching across the universe for old allies that have survived the centuries since the last war.

Los Angeles was Atlantis once, and it’s set to become the drowned city again. The people who might be able to stop it from becoming a myth are an unruly bunch — a disconnected, ridiculously wealthy rapper W-2, an angry screenwriter-turned-car thief Sonia, a mysterious astronaut coming back to Earth from Mars, and a deranged stranger with a completely different story to tell. Against them: insane cultists, rogue National Security Agency operators, something large and terrible in the Ocean, and time itself. No pressure.

In a fantastical 1860s England, every quiet little township is terrorized by a ferocious monster — much to the townsfolk’s delight! Each town’s unique monster is a source of local pride, not to mention tourism. Each town, that is... except for one. Unfortunately, for the people of Stoker-on-Avon, their monster isn’t quite as impressive. In fact, he’s a little down in the dumps. Can the morose Rayburn get a monstrous makeover and become a proper horror?

Stripped of its arcane language and its interminable passages of poetry, genealogy, and law, every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no more than a few pages each. Written by Mark Russell with cartoons by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday School teachers and church sermons.

KEY SELLING POINTS: KEY SELLING POINTS: • “Really fun, goofy, extremely silly fantasy for readers of all ages, crying out for reviewers and critics to make appalling puns of the ‘monstrously good’ variety.” — Neil Gaiman

Top Shelf Productions is proud to present the first volume of March, a graphic novel trilogy co-authored by Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) and Andrew Aydin, with art by Nate Powell (a New York Times bestseller, Eisner Award winner, and finalist for the LA Times Book Prize). March is a vivid, first-hand account of John Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights (including his key roles in the historic 1963 March on Washington and the 1965 Selma-Montgomery March), meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. In March, a true American icon teams up with one of America’s most acclaimed graphic novelists. Together, they bring to life one of our nation’s most historic moments, a period both shameful and inspiring, and a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.

KEY SELLING POINTS: • This is the first graphic novel by a sitting member of Congress, let alone a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner and national icon like John Lewis.
