And the universe will keep expanding!

Note from the Editor

Welcome to Graphic Universe!

Graphic Universe launched in 2006 to be Lerner Publishing Group's imprint for graphic novels (or—depending on your preference for nomenclature—comic books, sequential art, bandes dessinées, manga, or...). We currently keep two staff members ensconced in our secret lair NYC office high up in the Empire State Building, and many more editors, designers, and others in the home office in Minneapolis. Around the country and around the world, legions of authors, artists, letterers, colorists and other superheroic people provide the huge amount of hard work and talent needed to put a graphic novel together.

We might also possibly be plotting to take over the world alongside the ambitious pigeons who perch outside the windows of our lofty lair, but—ssh—don't tell anyone.

Carol M. Burrell, Editorial Director, on behalf of the entire Graphic Universe team
