Exclusive Preview: ‘The Little Book of Knowledge: Sharks’
IDW has been publishing a series of French imports titled The Little Book of Knowledge, and unlike the similar books you may have read as a child, they cover a wide range of topics, from tattoos to New Hollywood. Their latest one, though, is about sharks, and it is (the publisher assures me) “perfect for kids.” Check out our exclusive preview and see for yourself. The hardcover graphic novel goes on sale in comic shops on May 30 and in bookstores on June 26. Here’s the solicit info:
