ALIA Graphic November 2021 Roundup

by | Nov 29, 2021 | monthly roundup | 0 comments

Is it that time already? 2021 has been a big year for us at ALIA Graphic Novels and Comics with our first-ever live webinar and themed graphic novel book clubs, and we thank our readers’ support for what we have achieved so far! 

We have just finished our first run of our library and collections-focused Graphic Novel Club, finishing on a high note with non-fiction comics, including a discussion on the seminal comic-about-comics, ‘Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art’ by Scott McCloud (Harper Collins). We are eagerly planning more Graphic Novel Clubs, professional development content and more to share with you in the new year. If you want to get involved, we are always happy to hear from someone new, and you can find out contact details through our official ALIA page.

In comics news this month, there have been announcements from a lot of big names, including a new series by Jeff Smith of Bone fame, a look at Dav Pilkey’s studio and creative process, and a new imprint from Mariko Tamaki which will focus exclusively on LGBTIQ+ comic creators. As always, there are plenty of new releases to round out the year in the lead-up to Christmas and we will be sharing our favourites on this month’s podcast, through Apple Music.
