Miranda Mercury Makes YALSA’s 2012 Great Graphic Novels for Teens List! (and more)

All,

Been a busy few weeks around Miranda Mercury Central, with the biggest news being the book’s recognition by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), placing on their 2012 Great Graphic Novels for Teens List. Huge, huge honor for the entire team, and a great way to kickstart the year. In addition, the book was spotlighted as “one of the best OGNs for 2011” by CBR’s Greg Burgas, and appears on Library Journal’s list of 25 Graphic Novels for Black History Month.

There is also another great review posted over at Comic Attack. Here’s a quick excerpt—

Sci-fi was made for books like The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury, that take the medium to those fun and exciting places you remember as a kid. It’s a fantastic all ages read that has quite a few things that are rare in comics. An intelligent, black female lead that is written as a character first and drawn more normal than most females (of any race) in comics. This is yet another stellar title from Archaia, and I can’t wait to read more of Miranda Mercury’s adventures!”

Thanks to all the folks that have already picked up the book, and if you haven’t quite yet, no time like the present. More soon, and thanks again…

  1. Any tease about Miranda’s future adventures….?

    • Jeremy, 

      Lee and I are doing the Megacon show together this weekend, and we’ll be laying out the master plan for volume 2’s production this year. Until then, a quick script excerpt from issue #305

      >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      (5) Jack standing over Vega, pointing down at him and looking like he’s going to wring his neck in front of dozens of witnesses.                        

      JACK            
      YOU HAVE EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IT.              

      JACK            
      TAKE HIM TO HOLDING, DOROTHY WILL TELL YOU WHERE.  

      (6) Big guy drags Vega off as Zamanda approaches, touching Jack on his shoulder and trying to calm his rage, which is obviously boiling over.              

      JACK            
      Z, TELL EVERYONE THE SERVICE IS OVER AND GET THEM SAFELY OFF-PLANET.              

      ZAMANDA            
      JACK, LET ME STAY…I CAN HELP…  

      (7) Jack pulls away from her, almost insulted by her overtures of sympathy, considering their complicated history.              

      JACK            
      EVERYONE, ZAMANDA.               

      JACK            
      YOU DON’T GET TO DO THIS.  

      (8) Jack storms off, leaving her all alone.              

      JACK            
      NOT TODAY.
