ALIA Graphic October 2020 Roundup

by | Oct 30, 2020 | monthly roundup | 0 comments

 Greetings readers, writers, and others! 

The good news is – there
are only two more months of 2020 left, so things will surely improve around the
world soon….right? Also, there is only a week until we find out the results of
the election in the United States of America that has the rest of the world waiting
with bated breath.

Closer to home, Victoria has made the rest of the country
proud with getting their Covid 19 numbers down to 0 new cases. Well done guys! Unfortunately,
the news is not so great for the rest of the world – but we are here to talk
all thing comics and graphic novels. So, for a few minutes, forget about your
worries and check out some of the awesome news, media, new releases, and professional
development we have collected for you this month.

We’ve got some really interesting articles to check out this
month, including the exciting news that Lumberjanes is going to be made into an
animated series. The Reading Graphic webinar by ALA looks like an excellent way
to get some insight into the rapidly expanding medium of graphic novels, and for
a quick shopping list check out the compilation by The Beat for 68 of the most anticipated
graphic novels coming out later this year.

Pssst… Don’t feel like reading through our October Round-up?
You can listen to our team chat about all of the month’s news and new releases and
some of their favourite comic picks on our ALIA
Graphic Podcast
. While you’re there, why not subscribe for some excellent Creator Chats
with Australian creators. Our latest Creator Chat was with Shaun Keenan, you can listen to it as a podcast or watch it on our YouTube channel.
