The young adult segment of the comic book industry has seen growth in recent years. Gains have been seen in library, book stores and direct market shops.
Independent publisher Vault Comics recently announced a new imprint called Myriad to cater to this market.
"The new middle grade and YA imprint will offer original graphic novels and serialized graphic works as well as a lineup of new and established authors and artists. The initial list of titles and creators will be announced in November 2018." (Publishers Weekly)
Myriad can open doors for emerging creators interested in YA comics and signal to other independent publishers that growth can still be found outside the superhero genre.
