The Book Report Network is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of its newest website, GraphicNovelReporter.com.
GraphicNovelReporter.com will give readers of graphic novels what they’ve been waiting for — a fresh, in-depth look at these books and their creators. It’s a website designed for those who love the many genres within the format — and those who are curious as to what the excitement of these titles is all about.
Scheduled to launch later this month, GraphicNovelReporter.com will capitalize on the exploding format of graphic novels, including manga and the serious literary consideration this format is receiving at this time. The website will include reviews and interviews as well as news, opinions, blogs, bestseller and “Best Of” lists, and Books Into Movies and Books Into Movies on DVD features, all written with the voice and tone that have become the signature of The Book Report Network and its flagship website, Bookreporter.com.
“We have been following the phenomenal growth in this market for the past year and are excited and energized by the opportunity to showcase these titles and creators to our readers,” said Carol Fitzgerald, President of The Book Report Network. “We have been impressed by the market’s double digit growth — and the commitment from librarians and educators who are embracing graphic novels in record numbers, as well as interest from booksellers. The site will deliver content that attracts and engages those already devoted to the format as well as those who are new to this exciting medium.”
The website will be edited by John Hogan, best known as the former editor of Pages magazine, who is a lifetime fan of comics and graphic novels. Recognizing that the audience for this market is diverse, GraphicNovelReporter.com will include content for adults, kids and teens. Given the enthusiasm that younger readers already have shown for this material, the reviews and features targeting teens and kids will be posted simultaneously on Teenreads.com and Kidsreads.com, respectively, as well as GraphicNovelReporter.com.
