Kibuishi and Kim’s Graphic Novel Plans

Yesterday the story broke about Kazu Kibuishi’s deal with publisher Scholastic for two graphic novels, the first one scheduled for a 2007 release.

But Kibuishi is not the only one with a graphic novel in the works. Derek Kirk Kim has also announced that his next graphic novel will be released in 2007. It will be published by FirstSecond Books, which appears to be a brand new graphic novel imprint to publisher Roaring Brook Press. Kim has posted a sketch of the main character on his website, and promises more sketches and sneak peaks to come.
