Please note: Information feed tends still to be problematic for graphic novels (as well as children’s books) and while we have endeavoured to amend the above with the full key creative team, time factors are such that we have had to leave the only creator supplied in the longer list below. Similarly additional titles, especially from the latter months of the period will be added when the information has been confirmed.
