I received the hardcopy version of First Second’s catalog in the mail a few days ago (thanks, Gina!), but you can check out their Spring 2007 selections over at their website. The graphic novel that draws my interest the most in the new catalog is Garage Band by Italian comic creator Gipi, and First Second rewarded my curiousity about the book with preview pages from it over on their site. Go check’em out.
Update: In terms of when to look for these books … First Second is releasing their spring 2007 titles over three months, instead of all in one as they have in the past. Sardine in Outer Space 3 and Garage Band are coming out in April; Tiny Tyrant and The Professor’s Daughter are coming out in May; and The Lost Colony 2: The Red Menace and The Black Diamond Detective Agency are coming out in June. So it looks like they’re releasing one “all ages” title along with one aimed at older audiences each month.
