Graphic Novel of the Month

 Star Wars: Lando

Star Wars: Lando

You know him, you love him — now, join him for his biggest caper ever as master of charm Lando Calrissian steps into his very own high-stakes adventure! Before he joined the rebellion, before he ran Cloud City, Lando made his way in the galaxy getting by on some swindles, some swagger and a smile. With the loyal Lobot at his side, Lando has a plan to steal a very valuable ship. But has he bitten off more than he can chew? One of the galaxy's deadliest, most effective trackers is on his tail, and the heist of a lifetime has become a fight to survive! Lando and Lobot took this gig for the easy payday — but if they make it through alive, they'll never be the same. It's the tale of a scoundrel in his natural element: trouble!

2016 Winners Announcement

 

 

The Stan Lee Excelsior Award is the only nationwide book award for graphic novels and manga - where kids aged 11-16 decide the winner by rating each book as they read it!

Eight graphic novels are selected for the shortlist and it now attracts over two hundred schools and public libraries from all over the UK - from Scotland to Jersey, from Belfast to Gateshead! The overall goal of this scheme is to encourage reading amongst teenagers. However, its secondary target is to raise the profile of graphic novels and manga amongst school librarians and teachers. This storytelling medium has been a largely underused resource within education for many years. The Stan Lee Excelsior Award attempts to highlight some of the amazing books that are out there - books that fully deserve to be in our school libraries alongside regular fiction!

We work closely with both the School Library Association and the Stan Lee Foundation. We are thrilled that 'Stan The Man' has given us his blessing and his permission to name this award after him.

'Nuff said!
