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. The cover for the book has just been released […]

Laura Terry is a cartoonist, a graduate of Pratt and the Center for Cartoon Studies and a former Xeric Grant winner (for Overboard). And now she’s had an original graphic noverl called Graveyard Shakes picked up by Scholastic. The cover looks great and the synopsis which you can read below also sounds very appealing. 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.
