Join us for our fall graphic novel webcast! You’ll get a sneak peak at some of the great graphic novels hitting the shelves over the next few months and hear tips on how to share the exciting world of graphic novels with your patrons. Random House will discuss their upcoming titles from DC Comics, Del Rey, Archie Comics, and Kodansha: something for everyone. Hear more about Superman trying to get back in touch with the “normal” people, romantic hijinks staged by a devious novelist just so she can write about them, the real story of Steve Jobs’ failings as well as his successes, and what the best stories are from the epic 20-year history of Sonic the Hedgehog, the longest running comics series based on a videogame. And that’s just a few of the titles starring in this webcast.
