The article reports that Hyperion Books for Children, New York, which did not publish any graphic novels in 2004, is continuing its push to make the format a substantial part of it's publishing strategy, most recently by entering an agreement last week with The Center for Cartoon Studies to publish graphic format biographies for children beginning in fall 2006. The first two titles will be biographies of master escape artist Harry Houdini and baseball legend Satchel Paige. The publisher will launch seven graphic novels in 2005, and will publish 12 in 2006.
