A while ago The Beat shared the publishing announcement for Graveyard Shakes, a graphic novel for kids from CCS alum Laura Terry (Overboard) – we’ve been fans of her mini comics for a while, and as you can see from the synopsis below, it sounds like a winning premise.

Laura Terry is a cartoonist, a graduate of Pratt and the Center for Cartoon Studies and a former Xeric Grant winner (for Overboard).

What interests me most about this deal is that, generally speaking, Laura Terry is unknown outside of minicomics circles, and this never appeared online as a webcomic, but she’s had a whole GN picked up for publishing by one of the most successful publishers in the business.
