Sales of kids titles, the largest category of graphic novel sales, continued to grow in 2020 despite the challenges caused by the pandemic, and accounted for nearly one-third of graphic novel sales last year (see "Kids Titles Account for Nearly One-Third of 2020 Graphic Novel Sales").  The rapid growth over the past few years is attracting more interest from publishers, who are growing the number of kids titles even faster than sales.

ICv2’s Kids Comics and Graphic Novels Week is providing a week of focused content to help retailers plan their kids sections for the rest of 2021, sponsored by Yen Press and JY, VIZ Media, and NPD BookScan.  We’ll be running market reports, overview articles, Pick Hits, columns, and product news.
