Next Amelia Rules! Book to Be the Last
In this lengthy interview with Jimmy Gownley at PublishersWeekly.com, the author looks back at the history of his series Amelia Rules! From being self-published to being picked up by Simon & Schuster in 2008, his series has been running for over 10 years. It’s a wonderful overview of what used to be possible in the comic market, how much things have changed over the years, and how Gownley has adapted to the changing industry. The most recent Amelia Rules!, The Meaning of Life… and Other Stuff, was one of my best graphic novels of 2011.
However, in the article, he also reveals that “The eighth book, Her Permanent Record, is the last Amelia book that Gownley plans for a while.” He’s instead thinking of putting out a how-to book that focuses more on “why to” create art.
