One of the most prominent trends of 2019 was the growth of graphic novels and graphic nonfiction as a category. Publisher’s Weekly Senior News Editor Calvin Reid notes in a December 2019 article: “Over the last two years or so more than 20 new publishing platforms focused on graphic novels and/or graphic nonfiction have been started and the category is growing at a healthy pace.”
Penguin Random House has an extensive backlist of top-selling graphic novels and graphic nonfiction encompassing a broad range of topics. With page-turning combinations of artistic imagery mixed with thoughtfully written stories, these titles go beyond traditional storytelling to craft narratives that immerse readers into captivating worlds.
