The Future of the Graphic Novel
The Los Angeles Public Library organized an insightful panel on "The Future of Graphic Literature" (6-part video at New Rage Order). Among the panelists, artist and editor Kazu Kibuishi talked about his new children's graphic novel anthology, Flight Explorer (scheduled for early 2008), his own upcoming graphic novel, Amulet, Jeff Smith's Bone (Scholastic), and more tidbits about the children's graphic novel market. If you're new to the comics publishing industry, it's a great, albeit mellow, intro! Thanks to my illustrator friend Christina Forshay for the heads-up!
