Big plans for Gigantic

Writing for Publishers Weekly (subscription required), Heidi MacDonald draws attention to Rick Spears' new venture, Gigantic Graphic Novels. The Brooklyn-based publisher plans to release six to eight books a year, beginning with a collected Teenagers From Mars, by Spears and artist Rob G.

That will be followed by Dead West, a graphic novel by the same creative team, as well as the sequel The Curse of the Teenagers from Mars, and original projects by "an array of fresh young talent."

Gigantic announced last week that it had signed an exclusive agreement with Publishers Group West for bookstore distribution.
