It’s a Comics Explosion

Remember the dark ages of a few years ago? The days when graphic novels and comics were hard to come by? The days when a comics-loving kid could plow through every available GN and be forced to twiddle thumbs until something new came out?

Those days are gone.

Every time I turn around lately, there are new comics being published by houses committed to the form. Some publishers are expanding their offerings, while others have launched dedicated imprints.

Here are a few to look out for (and some of their recent books) . . .

Random House Graphic

Etch (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)


I Can Read Comics (Under the HarperAlley imprint)
