It's been a while --- eight months to be specific --- since our last GraphicNovelReporter.com (GNR) newsletter. Though the newsletter has been on hiatus, we have continued to update the site as we worked behind the scenes to address the direction that we wanted GNR to take. We spent the last four years developing a single back end for our seven editorial websites, which gives us the ability to "shelve" titles to reach whatever audiences are interested in them.

Continuity is one of comics’ most powerful assets. Decades of publication history for a particular title lend great weight to story arcs that take advantage of that history, and in the hands of the right author, a hero (or villain) can hold an almost endless complexity of character. Which is why origin stories are so damned hard. When a writer takes on a series reboot, she must portray a beloved hero before that hero ever was, and create a convincing genesis that feels true to longtime fans, but also fresh. Read More

When your graphic novel garners a foreword from renowned comics writer Warren Ellis, you have already done something extraordinary. That is to say, this tale isn’t akin to its namesake --- and ORDINARY comes across as much more than its title belies. It’s a story you might have heard before, but Rob Williams’s prose coupled with the effortless artistic style of D’Israeli brings a truly fun and enjoyable adventure to the page. Read More

Imagine a world where everyone has superpowers. That is, except you. You are the same old turgid, miserable, lonely loser you've always been. 

But when it comes to superpowers, apparently you can indeed have too much of a good thing. With everyone able to destroy tower blocks with a single punch, any minor fracas escalates into a city-leveling combat, and the world is now in ruins as terrorism and war threaten the very survival of the planet.  

What's needed is a return to normality, to devolve back from Superhuman to just human --- and there's only one man for the job: down-at-the-heels, divorced New York plumber Michael Fisher.
