The Beat pointed to Booklist’s Top 10 Graphic Novels for Youth, which led me to discover that the magazine devoted the entire March 15 issue to a “Spotlight on Graphic Novels.”

Other features include:

  • A piece on the building blocks of a library manga collection for teens, by Robin Brenner
  • The Top Ten Graphic Novels 2007, i.e., those books the magazine reviewed most favorably between March 2006 and January 2007
  • An interview with Gene (American Born Chinese) Yang and Andy (Owly) Runton
  • An interview with Alison (Fun Home) Bechdel, which includes discussion of the recently resolved controversy in Marshall, Missouri
  • And bunches of other awesome stuff.
  • Seriously, go, read.
