ALIA Graphic March Roundup

by | Apr 1, 2022 | monthly roundup | 0 comments

This month we have another great mix of news and new titles.

The Angouleme Comics Art Festival is one of the most prestigious in the world and it has announced the full list of official selections and the Grand Prix Award short list. It’s always interesting to see what’s happening with comics in Europe where the ninth art, as they call it there, is huge. We also have some great links for collections and really interesting podcast and webinars.

Most importantly, in case you missed it, we announced the ALIA Graphic Notable Australian Graphic Novels Shortlist, with the best of the best from last year. 2021 was an amazing year for Australian graphic novels and we’re so excited to see all the great graphic novels coming out this year, with new titles from Remy Lai and Neverlanders, the collaboration between Tom Taylor and Jon Sommariva on the horizon.

We also hope lots of you will join us in this month’s ALIA Graphic Novel Club. This month it’s special one because we’re discussing three excellent Australian graphic novels by Mirranda Burton, Mandy Ord and Chris Gooch. Read them and join us for the discussion. All the details are on our ALIA Graphic Novel Club tab.

Finally, if you want to get involved with ALIA Graphic, please get in touch! The more people that join the group the better our resources will be.
