CELEBRITY GRAPHIC NOVELS

14 Oct

There is no doubt graphic novels have come into their own and turned into the hottest source for blockbuster movies. It seems that is not enough. The latest trend is “celebrity-created” (aka celebrity-sponsored) graphic novels. There seems to be several in development and/or published, all have secured movie-deals and I haven’t found any in a bookstore.
