Newsweek writes up SHOOTING WAR, the new graphic novel from Grand Central, presents a slideshow of Milton Caniff art, and looks at the graphic novel booklet:
“Shooting War” is an example of a growing industry. Over the last five years the graphic novel market has more than tripled, with sales of book-format comics growing from $100 million in 2001 to $330 million last year, numbers that are noticed in a publishing industry that has been flat over the last several years. “The market for graphic novels has exploded. There aren’t a whole lot of categories that have shown that kind of growth in decades,” says Calvin Reid, a senior news editor at Publishers Weekly who has covered the comics and graphic novel industry since the 1980s.
