Today, Publishers Weekly broke the story:
My next book will be called SISTERS!
From the press release:
Raina Telgemeier has signed a two-book deal with Scholastic’s Graphix imprint….The first book, Sisters, will be a companion to the author’s 2010 Eisner Award winner, Smile (also published by Graphix). Sisters, which is set for 2014, will look at “the inner workings of [Telgemeier’s] family,” focusing on her relationship with her younger sister. The second book in the deal, which is currently untitled, will also be a graphic work.
I don’t have a set release date yet, but it will be sometime next year. I’m working on the art as we speak! Enjoy a sneak peak, above, at a couple of my penciled panels.
I’m pretty excited about this book, and even more excited now that I’m able to share the title with all of you! Of course I’ll share more information here on my site when I’ve got it. Till then…hope you’re all staying warm!
