Links: New Rogue One Comic on the Way

Rogue One

IDW, which will launch a line of all-ages Star Wars Adventures comics in September, will also publish a graphic novel, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in December. Another graphic novel, The Force Awakens, will be out later this month.

Darryl Cunningham talks about his new book, Graphic Science, which collects mini-biographies of seven people whose important contributions to science have been undeservedly overlooked.

Katie Quirk writes about the graphic novels that her kids read during the year they spent in Costa Rica; since they weren’t able to bring many books, her parents sent them monthly bundles, and they had good taste! Best of all, at the end of the trip she donated them all to the local library for other kids to enjoy.

Comics scholar Aaron Kashtan writes about the BOOM! Box imprint, which includes Lumberjanes, Goldie Vance, and Giant Days, holding it up as an example of an imprint whose books are both socially progressive and genuinely fun to read.
