ALIA Graphic July 2021 Roundup

by | Aug 1, 2021 | monthly roundup | 0 comments

Welcome back for another month of ALIA Graphic Novels and Comics’ roundup of all the latest news, media and professional development opportunities from the world of comics.

NAIDOC week was the 4th to 11th of July and some terrific new graphic novels by indigenous creators were released. There is also a lot of new information available relating to Manga and as well as some terrific lists to help fill out your collections, and we have an enourmous list of New Releases for you to check out this month!

It’s been a big month for awards with the Eisner, Aurealis and Comic Arts Awards of Australia (formerly Ledger Awards) all being announced. These events were of course hosted online again this year due to the continuing pandemic, along with San Diego Comic-Con’s slightly underwhelming event.

And July was ALIA Graphic Novels and Comics’ first online bookclub! Thanks to everyone who joined the Zoom – we can’t wait to see you again next month when we discuss some comic versions of other media. Just follow the link here to book your spot. So, without further ado, here is this month’s roundup!
