Gina Gagliano does an excellent job at the First Second blog of explaining the “New Adult” tag for books, and by extension, graphic novels, particularly as it relates to their recent release The Cute Girl Network.
Now that ‘New Adult’ exists, any time there is a mostly squeaky-clean book with a smidgeon of slightly racy content, all you need to do is put ‘New Adult’ on it somewhere and people will understand precisely what they are in for.
It’s the category past Young Adult, about slightly older people trying to find their way in the world, with the potential for more sexual or otherwise mature content.
