Cabot comes to comics
More good news for all those teen readers! Meg Cabot, author of the popular Princess Diaries series, will be making the foray into comics with Avalon High: Coronation, a manga sequel to her novel Avalon High brought to us by the ever-expanding Tokyopop (which also answers the question "whatever happened to Jinky Coronado?", as Coronado is set to draw the graphic novel). This should hit stores in July.
This is the result of a joint effort by Tokyopop and HarperCollins to create a progressive new line of co-branded (i.e., licensed) manga titles based on key young adult franchises from the HarperCollins list. The other title, set to release in May, is Warriors: The Lost Warrior, based on the Erin Hunter series, to be written by Dan Jolley and drawn by James Barry. Hey, it’s cats, go wrong!
