New book line

apisAs a nonfiction author, this caught my eye.  Capstone Press plans to launch a line of nonfiction graphic novels.  Graphic Expeditions will introduce readers to social studies, history and world cultures.

Read more about this and the publisher’s plans to add longer fiction graphic novels to their lists.

So far, my favorite graphic novel is Clan Apis by Jay Hosler.  I love the way the author uses dialog although the characters are all insects.   I know, I know.  Strictly speaking, bees do not speak in English dialog.  But it works.  Check this book out if you haven’t already read it.  You can read the review of it here on my other blog.

I’ve never tried to write a graphic novel but the thought of getting to write one that focuses on history and world cultures is mighty tempting.
