Media Release — Best-selling author Janet Evanovich is no stranger to the New York Times bestseller list. In fact, her books have dominated this list for years now. It should come as no surprise, then, that Troublemaker, her first graphic novel, has topped the graphic-books bestseller list for two weeks in a row.
Cowritten with Evanovich’s daughter, Alex Evanovich, Troublemaker is the continuation of the popular Barnaby series, which features the high-stakes misadventures of Alex Barnaby, the main character; NASCAR driver Sam Hooker; and, of course, Beans, the Saint Bernard. The third book in the series, this exciting new volume delivers more fast cars, fast-paced action, and steamy romance.
“We are absolutely floored by the amazing job the people at Dark Horse and artist Joëlle Jones did with Troublemaker,” said Janet and Alex Evanovich. “It’s been an honor to be part of such a talented and dedicated team.”
“Topping the New York Times graphic-books bestseller list is extremely gratifying to all who worked so hard on Troublemaker as well as the booksellers who supported it,” said Dark Horse’s vice president of business development, Michael Martens.
