HarperCollins To Start Publishing Children's Graphic Novels
The latest SCBWI Bulletin announces that Brenda Bowen (formerly with Simon & Schuster and Hyperion) recently joined HarperCollins to launch a new imprint, which will publish children's graphic novels. Bowen is looking for new writers and artists, and for "graphic novels and books on cultural trends and titles with 'global reach,'" states a HarperCollins press release. Harold Underdown lists the name of the new imprint as "Bowen Publishing." Bowen oversaw the Hyperion launch of graphic novel biographies, such as Houdini by Jason Lutes and Nick Bertozzi.
