Off-Panel: Margaret Atwood is Writing a Graphic Novel

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

“Margaret Atwood, who has written poetry, children’s literature and fiction and nonfiction, is adding another genre to her repertoire: graphic novels. Dark Horse Comics will publish “Angel Catbird,” written by Ms. Atwood and drawn by Johnnie Christmas, in the fall of 2016.”
