Graphic Library line marches forward: Publishers Weekly (subscription required) reports that the September resignation of Jon Martin as president of Capstone Press won't interfere with the supplemental publisher's plans for a Graphic Library line. Matt Keller, president of parent Coughlan Companies, says the line will launch in January with eight titles, including The Sinking of the Titanic, The Adventures of Marco Polo, The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln and The Battle of the Alamo. The books are designed for students with a grade 3–4 reading level.

Capstone plans to publish 24 titles in its nonfiction Graphic Library line by next fall, then expand beyond history to biographies.
