Dark Horse Lands Six Books on the YALSA 2014 List!


This is great news – YALSA, the Young Adult Library Services Association has a great list of books and graphic novels, chosen by librarians, every year. This year, Dark Horse landed six books on the YALSA list, thus assuring that I’ll be able to stock my tweens’ and teens’ shelves with graphic novels aplenty. Great work to all the writers and artists who make these books happen!

“Dark Horse has always considered librarians to be essential to the cause of bringing graphic novels to a broader audience, just as we feel visionary writers and artists push the boundaries of the medium,” said Dark Horse’s VP of book trade sales, Michael Martens. “With the selections of these titles to the 2014 YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Teens list, the boundaries will be pushed and the audience broadened! Thanks to both YALSA and our authors for making this happen!”
