Whew. These questions are awesome and so totally hard. One thing I want to remind everyone is that sometimes rules are made to be broken and there is always an exception to the rule. That’s not to say just go ahead and do what everyone tells you not to do. But maybe…
WOW. Scott has asked a very difficult question. I’m not sure this situation will apply to many of you, but it’s a very intriguing question and makes you think a bit about query rule-breaking.
Thanks for your question, Scott!
Tonight, I felt utterly attacked for reading comic books. I was simply remarking how I found it odd that Thor and Captain America were being released around the same time when someone in the room said, “Does anyone here actually reeeead comic books?” To which I tried to give my dirtiest look, but I’m pretty sure it went unnoticed. And I was holding back my valliest of all valley girl eeeewww’s…
So for comic bookers all across the multiverse, for those of you who have had your intelligence doubted because of your need for a rousing superhero/villain standoff, for those of you who have been dubbed nerd, geek, loser…whatever. For those of you who dress up for any Comic-Con you can get your hands on, and for those of you who are familiar with Batman OUTSIDE of Christopher Nolan films, this is for you.
RAD! The questions are lining up and I am so excited to be doing this. Our first question comes from Kate Hixson. Enjoy and learn!
Thank you, Kate!
Look for another question, answered tomorrow!
I’m a proud little agent today. I got a bunch of texts during church from my client, HC Noel, rockin it fo’ reals at NYC Comic Con. He sold out his Ghost Pirate T-shirts and pimped Tara like the wicked awesome pimp that he is.
Exactly a month from today…
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will release The Little Prince Graphic Novel. Swoooooon.
It’s my impression that the French version of the graphic novel has been around for a bit, and that has been a gross oversight on my part. But for those of you who were NOT forced to take 4 years of French in high school, The Little Prince Graphic Novel shall prove to be just as sublime.
So on October 18th, head to your book store and lose yourself in this beautifully daring, tragic and loving story—now with graphic artwork. C’est véritablement utile puisque c’est joli.
