An ICv2 Release. Kids comics and graphic novels are a key part of a healthy market, developing the lifetime consumers that drive sales.  They help attract and engage parents, and have accounted for over one-quarter of graphic novel sales in the comic store and book channels combined in recent years.

More publishers add kids imprints every year, and young adult titles are making up a growing portion of the category (see "Graphic Novels Up in 2022").

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 2023, sponsored by Yen Press and JY, Mad Cave Studios and Papercutz, Quarto and Saturday AM.  We'll be running market reports, overview articles, Pick Hits, columns, and product news.
