Andi Watson’s Glister finds a new home…. and Walker Books finds a new Graphic Novel Imprint

Published On November 11, 2008 | By Richard Bruton | Comics, General, News

Over on Andi Watson’s Live Journal page, he’s put a link to the latest edition of Digital Bookseller, the online version of the Bookseller’s Manga & Graphic Novels insert that went out to booksellers this month. There, on the inside cover is an ad for Walker Books which has this image:

So, after a couple of issues of Glister at Image it seems it’s finally getting a good book deal. After all, if you’re making a great small graphic novel ideally suited for children and perfect for girls, Image Comics may not be the best place to get it out to as many people as possible. Good luck to Andi with this; I’m sure you’ll be hearing more about it in the new year.

And it’s not only Andi’s Glister that’s new to Walker Books. It seems they’ve jumped into the burgeoning Graphic Novel publishing market feet first with a new publishing imprint:

Upcoming for 2009 are a host of interesting looking books aside from Andi’s Glister that include the Dave McKean illustrated The Savage and the Tony Lee written Robin Hood. Plus much more for all ages and all tastes . Walker Books have a link to their new Graphic Novels imprint here and a 6Mb PDF download for the Graphic Novel imprint here.
