Editor/Agent/Art Director panel: what about graphic novels? #scbwiwwa

Edward Necarsulmer: There's going to be a WRINKLE IN TIME graphic novel.

Paul Rodeen: jury out on how well they'll do. We're still trying to figure out how to do hardcover and paperback GNs.

Elizabeth Law: Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate...heavily illustrated paper-over-board MG fiction that brings the accessibility of graphic novels are the trending things.

Jordan Brown: He's a big fan. They're sold in a different way than books. You have to get in that comic bookstore. Major publishers don't have a huge amount of experience with this. The key: Find GNs that will be broadly appealing, not just to regular GN readers. (Blankets is an example of one that does this.)
