In the query, include publisher submission history and previous publishing credits, if applicable. (If you are a debut author, do not worry.) After your query letter, paste the first 5-10 pages of your novel into the body of the e-mail. For some it would have been the first book he or she had ever made.

Some you’ll zip through, ravenous for the story; others you’ll linger over, absorbed in the extraordinary eye candy and artistic bravado. Stark and powerful, this is a graphic novel like nothing you've ever seen. Corneille is intellectually and emotionally a Neoclassicist—clear and hard, a true objectivist, sure of both his verse and the motivations of his characters. Part Preacher and part The Crow it's a wicked concoction of horror story, art and emotion.

This is a perfect read for the Halloween season and should be a part of each and every library collection. The story of the end of a relationship is both intimate and cosmic in scale. 36 = It Was The War Of The Trenches, Jacques Tardi (1982) Life in the trenches caught by the French cartoonist in horrifying detail.

This one is all angst: the eighth- and ninth-grade years, when our heroine is feeling guilty about still playing with Barbies and everything feels like the end of the world. The artist is able to use his remarkable anatomical understanding and portrait abilities in the service of a story which questions the capability of any portraiture to truly grasp its subject. By the time I'd finished this first volume I was hooked. Together, HiLo, DJ, and Gina start piecing the fragments of HiLo’s memory together as strange robots continue to collide with Earth and the trio of friends bravely save the day.

While I mainly blog about book-related topics, I also blog about the Arts and Subscription Boxes. When you now take a look at a simple comic book, you'll notice immediately that there is a high level of emphasis on visual art and not text. Teachers of world literature often like to expose students to the archetypical approach, introducing students to ideas originally put forth by Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell, and for more advanced students, studying the criticism of Northrop Frye.

Krashen notes that the complex vocabulary in comics has a “respectable level of difficulty” (2004, p. 99). The struggle between good and evil rages constantly, while we fight to maintain balance. The poet, after all, believed language is a virus, and this 110 page long graphic novel takes this notion, and all implicit challenges, particularly potentially political ones, very seriously. F Uncloseted graphic novels have moved into libraries via Eisner winners Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home and Howard Cruse’s Stuck Rubber Baby.
