New York Comic Con 2018 has come and gone, and we had *so* much fun this weekend meeting fans, talking books, and revealing huge, epic news!
Didn't make it to the Javits Center? We've got a recap for you of all the big events, including our Women of AFK panel, the Drawsome panel featuring some of your favorite authors, and Raina Telgemeier's *huge* reveal! (Here's a hint: make some space on your bookshelves in 2019!)
Just revealed at #NYCC: New publishing is on the way from Raina Telgemeier (@goraina)!— Graphix (@GraphixBooks) October 5, 2018
#ShareYourSmile: Raina's Guide to Telling Your Own Story, an interactive journal and how-to guide coming April 2019.

@lizettemserrano took this video of me today with the reveal slide for #Guts. Thank you for the outpouring of excitement! I’m still inking this book as we speak, but taking a few days off to revel in finally being able to talk about it. Keep following me here (and my #dailyWIP hashtag!) for updates on my progress. I love making graphic novels for all of you to read! #comics #graphicnovels #rainatelgemeier #goraina #scholastic #graphixbooks
All signed and ready for the Drawesome Panel on Sunday! :D pic.twitter.com/rTBm3ClngP— Ru Xu NYCC H37 (@ruemxu) October 6, 2018
During the Drawsome panel, Kazu Kibuishi said, “I wanted to write comics that were more literary so I went out and made my own.” Literacy comes in so many forms - thanks @Scholastic— GeekMom (@GeekMomBlog) October 7, 2018
We'll see you next year for even more fun!
