As we reported earlier, Chris Ware’s new Graphic Novel Book, BUILDING STORIES (2012 Pantheon Books ), was set to be placed at the NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST!! Well, it went up today & they placed it in the #1 position!! Hey, don’t believe me? OK, here’s a screenshot! Better yet, click this LINK to check it out, ha! We want to congratulate both Chris Ware and Pantheon Books for this wonderful achievement. I guess I need to add that we’re not trying to brag, but we’re just really proud of this great news and wanted to share it. Thanks to everyone who made it happen.
Random House just re-released Michael Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novel, “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay” in Soft Cover Paperback ( it’s the one shown on the left, the other Cover on the right is for the eBook Edition & Audio Book ). So, we thought we would present this wonderful video of a Speaking Lecture Mr. Chabon did at the Dominican University of California in 2010. In it, Michael talks almost exclusively about the creation of this iconic novel & how he came about writing it, it’s very entertaining for sure & lasts for about an hour. So, go fix yourself some Popcorn, grab a drink, get comfy, and enjoy.
OK, We could not be more proud or incredibly super-happy right now because it has just been announced that the new BATMAN: DEATH BY DESIGN Graphic Novel ( DC Comics ) by Chip Kidd & Dave Taylor is listed as #2 in the “Hardcover Graphic Books” Section of THE NEW YORK TIMES Best Sellers List!! Wow! It’s almost to good to be true and, on a serious note, a very distinct honor.
