Links: What’s hot for summer
John Hogan reports on the Hot Fall Graphic Novels for Libraries panel at BEA (which featured GC4K blogger Eva Volin) and presents their full list at Graphic Novel Reporter. GNR also has their own lists of the hottest graphic novels of summer 2010, broken out by age and category.
Every week, my colleagues at Robot 6 and I report in on what we are reading. The stack always includes a lot of children’s comics, so check out this week’s edition and see what’s on our nightstands.
