Andrea Colvin has joined Little Brown Young Readers (a subsidiary of Hachette) as its new Editorial Director, according to The Comics Beat. Colvin, who began in her new role Monday, will reportedly be focused on kids graphic novels.
"This addition to our editorial leadership team enhances our publishing efforts in the growing area of graphic novels and graphic nonfiction," reads a statement from Little Brown provided to Comics Beat. "LBYR has recently had success in this market with the bestseller Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy: A Modern Retelling of Little Women and Middle School Misadventures and we look forward to building on these successes with Andrea’s passion, vision, and category expertise."
Colvin worked from December 2016 to May 2019 as Lion Forge's Vice President/Editor-In-Chief, but departed that role following news of the parent company's acquisition of Oni Press. While at Lion Forge, she helped launch three young reader imprints - something she also did previously at Andrews McMeel.
