Abrams ComicArts has announced a new line of graphic novels, Surely Books, that will be by and about members of the LGBTQIA community. Mariko Tamaki, co-creator of This One Summer and  Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me, will curate the new line, which will span a variety of fictional and nonfictional genres, including horror, comedy, fantasy, memoir, history, and educational titles.

Current plans call for two to three books per season, with the first three slated for Spring 2021: A biography of the writer Patricia Highsmith, by Grace Ellis (Lumberjanes, Moonstruck); a bio of General Baron von Steuben, a hero of the Revolutionary War who was openly gay, by Josh Trujillo and Levi Hastings (co-creators of Declaration); and a fictional tale about a group of friends who uncover a secret, by Terry Blas and Claudia Aguirre (co-creators of Hotel Dare).
