We’ve made the Great Graphic Novels for Teens 2011 List!

Every year YALSA (the Young Adult Library Services Association) put together a list of the top graphic novels that are suitable for teenagers (between the ages of 12 – 18).  This is a prestigious list that always has some top titles from the major publishers as well as a wide range from indie publishers and self-published authors.

Just an hour ago Kill Shakespeare was officially named as a finalist for the 2011 List!

This is a great accomplishment and validation that what we’re doing with this project is bearing fruit.  We’ve heard from so many teachers, librarians and students that tell us that they’re really enjoying the series and making this list will hopefully allow more people to check us out.

Thanks to everyone on the committee – and kudos to other friends of ours that were on the list, including Jamar Nicholas for Fist Stick Knife Gun, Mike Carey for The Unwritten, Vol 1., Jeff Lemire for Sweet Tooth, Vol. 1 and John Layman for Chew, Vol. 1.  All great selections and we’re honoured to be on the list with them.
