S&S to Distribute Zuiker Press Graphic Novel Imprint
Zuiker Press, a new “issue-based” publishing enterprise focused on graphic novels, has been founded by Michelle and Anthony E. Zuiker. The new press will "herald the voices of young authors," and will publish its first graphic titles in Fall 2018.
Simon & Schuster will handle distribution for Zuiker Press titles. The first two books from Zuiker Press, Mend by Sophia Recca with art Nam Kim, Garry Leach, and Fahriza Kamaputra; and Click by Lexi Philips (with the same art team), will be on sale in November 2018. Eight titles are in production, with two planned for each of the spring and fall seasons through spring 2021.
Zuiker Press will focus on such topics as body dysmorphia, school shootings, transgender, and suicide and opioid addiction. Each book will also include educational support materials on the subject to assist educators and parents on how to continue the dialogue.
