Gallery Books, a Simon & Schuster imprint, announced the launch of Gallery 13. Ed Schlesinger and Adam Wilson, two senior editors, will acquire and edit projects for this new graphic books line.
Jennifer Bergstrom, the publisher, gave this statement in the press release: “Visual storytelling has become a major part of the entertainment market, from movies to video games to apps. By forming Gallery 13, we look to put our own stamp on this modern narrative trend with exceptional books from remarkable authors and artists.”
The inaugural three books from the Gallery 13 list include Roughneck by Jeff Lemire, Alone by Chabouté, and Creepshow by Stephen King and Bernie Wrightson. Roughneck will be published in April 2017, Alone will be released in May 2017, and Creepshow will follow in July 2017.
