Exclusive Interview: “Spy School: The Graphic Novel” Writer Stuart Gibbs, Artist Anjan Sarkar


For the last ten years writer Stuart Gibbs has been entertaining young fans of James Bond-ish espionage stories with his Spy School novels. But as we all know, not all the young’uns like to read regular books; some prefer them to be…graphic. Which is why Gibbs has teamed up with artist Anjan Sarkar for Spy School: The Graphic Novel (hardcover, paperback, Kindle), the first in a series of comic book adaptations of his middle-grade spy novels. In the following email interview, Gibbs and Sarkar discuss how this came to be, how they came to work together, and how I’m the only one who’s ever referenced a certain young James Bond-ish movie.
