An ICv2 Release.  ICv2 is launching two weeks of special content on kids graphic novels and comics on, sponsored by Dark Horse Comics, VIZ Media, IDW Publishing, Papercutz, BOOM! Studios, and Abrams.  The content will include market info, interviews, news, reviews, and special features.

The special event on, “Grow the Business with Kids Comics and Graphic Novels,” is tied to two big events in the category:  Free Comic Book Day and Children’s Book Week.  The two events are connected this year, with Children’s Book Week following Free Comic Book Day (see “FCBD 2015 Gold Comics Announced”), and supported by Diamond Comic Distributors, Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, Children’s Book Council, and Every Child a Reader (see “Free Comic Book Day Ties to Children’s Book Week”).

“Graphic novels and comics for kids are blowing up this year,” ICv2 President Milton Griepp said.  “This has been an accelerating trend and 2015 is shaping up to be a watershed.  We’ve been amazed at the support this event has received from our sponsors, and we want to thank them for the opportunity to explore this category that’s so critical to the future of the business.”  

First up is an overview of current trends in the category (see “Kids Graphic Novels Big and Growing”).  Then through this week and next we’ll be talking to publishers, creators, and retailers about what’s happening in kids titles and what to expect for the future.

In addition to the overview article referenced above, here's the rest of our coverage of kids comics and graphic novels during this event.
