The Real Winners Of Comic-Con: Raina Telgemeier, Scholastic, Booksellers And Raina Telgemeier Fans

Today at Comic-Con International Raina Telgemeier announced the title of her next book for Graphix, the Scholastic graphic novels imprint through which her Smile, Drama, Sisters and contributions to the comics version of the Baby-Sitters Club have sold millions of copies as a group.

The titles of the Fall 2016, full-color book will be Ghosts, and Telgemeier describes it on her site as: "Eleven-year-old Catrina and her family are moving to the small coastal town of Bahía de la Luna because her younger sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn’t happy about leaving her friends, but she tries not to complain because she knows Maya will benefit from the clean, cool air that blows in from the sea. As the girls settle in, they learn there’s something a little spooky about their new town..." (Now you really have to click through because I took it for use here.)

I can't imagine a better conclusion to a Comic-Con to have the best-selling cartoonist of the moment announce her latest work like that.
