Everyone at least once in their lifetime has probably read or been read a Little Golden Book. 

Now RHCB is releasing a new imprint with a new director. Gina Gagliano will be joining RHCB as the publishing director to Random House Graphic, a new imprint for teen and children graphic novels.

Random House is no stranger to Graphic Novels, especially in their children’s department. A few popular children’s graphic novels include: 5 Worlds by Mark and Alexis Siegel, Babymouse by Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm, The Cardboard Kingdom by Chad Sell, etc.

When asked about this exciting opportunity Gagliano had this to say:

“I’m excited to be part of building a brighter future for the medium—one where there are comics for every reader, in every home, on everyone’s bookshelves—with Random House Graphic.”

This imprint will be launching in 2019.
