Amazon Announces New Comics Imprint

Stories are told through and translated into different media all the time. Books become movies. Television series become books. Movies are turned into TV shows. Now, Amazon will be making money off of books being turned into graphic novels and comics.

According to the L.A. Times, Amazon is launching a new comics imprint under its publishing umbrella. Called Jet City Comics, the imprint will publish graphic novels by George R. R. Maritn (Game of Thrones), Neal Stephenson (Foreworld), and Hugh Howey (Wool). According to its press release, Jet City Comics will publish already-published novels in a graphic novel format. That makes sense, particularly for the Foreworld series, which was originally published by another Amazon imprint, 47North.

Jet City Comics will now be the tenth imprint under the Amazon umbrella.

What do you guys think of the whole idea of turning novels into graphic novels?

    If it gets people reading, maybe it’s a good thing.
