Tokypop and DC Comics lead the final nominations for the Young Adult Library Services Association’s annual list of Great Graphic Novels For Teens with 23 nods each.

DC’s nominations include titles from its CMX, Minx and Vertigo imprints.

Tokyopop and DC are followed by Del Rey with 11 nominations, Viz Media with 10, Go! Comi with eight, and First Second and Marvel with seven each.


  1. Lots of way cool stuff there, but I just had to say GO BLUE BEETLE! Nice, fun book that is still in search of an audience it seems.

    Also, Rick Geary’s THE SAGA OF THE BLOODY BENDERS is awesome as are all the other books in this “Victorian Muders” series.

  2. The list is annual, so Scott Pilgrim Vol. 4 will be eligible for nominations for next year’s list. And, BTW, the list is for TEENS, ages 12-18, not for us adults.

    Believe me, the committee members will be seeking input from the teens at their libraries to help them decide what books will be on the final list. That’s what I’d be doing if I were on the committee.
