Graphic Novels for Girls from The Gibbs Sisters

2012 is scheduled to mark the debut of a full-length graphic novel from the Gibbs Sisters.

Shawnelle and I love graphic novels, and though girls have historically been the step-sisters of the comic book industry, authors and artists have been creating an amazing array of heroine-driven graphic novel literature and are breaking old misconceptions one book at a time.

A few of our growing list of favorite graphic novels for female audiences include:

Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, Raina Telgemeier's Smile, Daniel Clowes' Ghost World and Vera Brosgol's Anya's Ghost.

We will keep you updated with story and outwork as the months progress. We look forward to sharing the new book with you next year!
