After such a strong start, it might have seemed like 2013 couldn’t
get any better, but as the list of graphic novels coming in the second
half of the year shows, there’s no shortage of great books for readers
and sellers!
Dark Horse Comics continues its winning year with the expansion
of one of its best selling titles. Fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender can
get all the details behind the new hit series with The Legend of
Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book 1 – Air, covering the first season of
the smash hit Nickelodeon series. And the adventures of the original series continues in
Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Search Part 2. Award winning author Brian Wood
takes Star Wars fans back to the story that started it all with Star Wars Volume 1, featuring all the favorite characters from the original film. And they follow up the wildly successful
Hyrule Historia with art books for the video games Remember Me, Akaneiro, and The
Last of Us.
The success of IDW Publishing’s My Little Pony graphic novel proved that Equestria is
the place to be, and the publisher is offering readers another visit with Volume 2 of My Little
Pony: Friendship is Magic, along with a digest-sized edition of the first volume and the
first volume of My Little Pony Animated. The Last of the Time Lords takes center stage
again, in his current incarnation with Doctor Who Series 3 Volume 1, and previous with
Doctor Who Series 1: Winter’s Dawn, Season’s End – featuring the ever-popular
Tenth Doctor – and Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time Volume 2, celebrating the show’s
50th anniversary with by spotlighting each Doctor.
Image Comics continues to prove that new and unique voices can also provide strong
sales, with the release of Saga Volume 2, the latest in the New York Times bestselling sci-fi
drama series, and Fatale Volume 3, the hit horror/crime mash-up. Also offered is
Nowhere Men Volume 1, the series from Image publisher Eric Stephenson which shows
us “Science is the new rock and roll!” and Peter Panzerfaust Volume 2, the continuing
story of Peter Pan as set in WWII.
One of the biggest graphic novel events of the year comes in August, with Top Shelf Productions’ release of March Book One, the memoir of Congressman John Lewis chronicling
his days as a pioneer in the Civil Rights Movement.
Archaia Entertainment re-imagines a classic manga title for a modern Western audience
with Cyborg 009, while Dynamite Entertainment re-introduces readers to Garth Ennis’ controversial and popular superhero send-up with The Boys Omnibus Volume 1. Oni Press’
supernatural western (and soon-to-be television show) continues in The Sixth Gun Volume
5, while Hermes Press reprints a classic American strip with Walt Kelly’s Pogo: The
Complete Dell Comics Volume 1. And comic appraisers will find the latest information
on pricing and more in The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #43.
With all of the great titles on deck for the second half of the year, 2013 should prove to
be an amazing year for graphic novels, both in quality and – even better – sales.
All my best—

showcases some rarely seen ink wash work from a storytelling
maestro and features a new introduction from comics historian Mark

Murder. Not intricately plotted “whodunit.” Not fiery passionate fury.
But dirty, sad, disturbing actions from real people. That’s what Truman
Capote decided to use for In Cold Blood — his bold experiment in
the realm of the non-fiction “novel.” Following in that legacy is Capote
in Kansas, a fictionalized tale of Capote’s time in Middle America
researching his classic book.
Dex Parios has finally opened her own office, and her first case is to
find rock star Mim Bracca’s baby — her prized guitar — which
disappeared after her band Tailhook’s Portland show. Mim has no
leads, and she doesn’t want to go to the police, but Dex needs the
case, and besides, it shouldn’t be that hard to find a missing guitar.
As long as the D.E.A. doesn’t get involved ... or the Skinheads.

Monster on the Hill. In a fantastical 1860s England, every quiet little

pride, not to mention tourism. Each town, that is... except for one.
Unfortunately, for the people of Stoker-on-Avon, their monster isn’t
quite as impressive. In fact, he’s a little down in the dumps. Can
the morose Rayburn get a monstrous makeover and become a
proper horror?

every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no

by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in
You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate
retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday
School teachers and church sermons.

John Lewis (GA-5) and Andrew Aydin, with art by Nate Powell (a New York Times bestseller, Eisner Award winner, and

our nation’s most historic moments, a period both shameful and inspiring, and a movement whose echoes will be heard
for generations.
