ALA 2019: DC Reveals a Massive Slate of Graphic Novels Geared Towards Young Adults and Middle Grade Readers Releasing Through 2021

The 2019 convention for the American Library Association (ALA) kicked off with huge news that DC was consolidating its line under three “brands.” That left many to wonder about the future of the DC Zoom and DC Ink graphic novel lines. Launched last year, the new graphic novel imprints were focused on the young adult and middle grade readers and have been hits so far. DC followed up those concerns with an announcement of a slate of graphic novel releases aimed at those young adult and middle grade readers.

These graphic novels continue the focus on stories not part of DC’s ongoing continuity making them accessible to new fans. The releases also focus on the original mandate of YA titles being about “everyday aspirations, struggles, and triumphs,” while the middle grade releases being focused on stories about “friends, family, and growing up.”

DC Reveals New DC Ink Graphic Novels at BookCon 2019

During the DC Ink panel at BookCon 2019 with authors Kami Garcia, Danielle Paige, Lauren Myracle, and Mariko Tamaki, DC made several exciting announcements for the publisher’s upcoming YA graphic novels, revealing a new trailer and title for the highly anticipated Teen Titans series, and the artists and covers for the Spring 2020 slate.

In anticipation of its July 2, 2019, release DC debuted an official trailer for Teen Titans: Raven during the panel. Written by New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia and illustrated by fan-favorite artist Gabriel Picolo, Teen Titans: Raven follows 17-year-old Rachel Roth as she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother’s family after a tragic accident. Raven’s past and present collide when strange things happen during her final year of high school. Garcia’s debut graphic novel is the first book in her multi-part Teen Titans series with popular artist Gabriel Picolo.

Panel attendees were also treated to the first look at Garcia and Picolo’s next Teen Titans installment, Teen Titans: Beast Boy. Ahead of its 2020 release, a sneak preview of the book will be available in Teen Titans: Raven when the book goes on sale.

To cap off an already exciting panel, DC ended the discussion announcing the artists for previously announced YA graphic novels debuting in Spring 2020 and gave fans a first look at the covers. Full creative teams for the Spring 2020 YA graphic novel lineup are below.
