Off-Panel: NIMONA on the National Book Award Longlist

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“It isn’t the first graphic novel to make the prestigious National Book Award longest, but Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona IS the first book that was originally a serialized webcomic, and this is another huge groundbreaking recognition for a graphic novel.”

YES. 

“Rachel McAdams will star in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, the actress told TheWrap Monday.”

This is interesting casting. I do like Rachel McAdams, though I would have loved to see a PoC actress cast.

“While fans of “Star Trek” love to talk about “away missions” to the surface, a new Kickstarter campaign asks you to consider the lonely crewmember left behind who must beam the crew to and from the planet.”

I’ve already backed the Chief O’Brien Kickstarter — so excited.
