Disney's Frozen Graphic Novel Gets Over 100,000 Preorders

STK657873We reported that Joe Books had the rights to create a graphic novel based on Disney's blockbuster, Frozen.

In fact it's technically known as a Cinebook, panels created directly from the frames of a movie, then lettered and composed like a comic. An adaptation couldn't be more direct.

It's also over 300 pages long and sells for $14.99.

No wonder orders are high. We've been told pre-orders have topped six figures. Yet some retailers don't seem to have ordered a single copy.

Oh yes, and it's out for Christmas. Joe Books is basically saying to comic stores "would you like some money? Here!"

STK660079And if your readers just can't manage 376 pages of Frozen, then there's a 48 page comic book (using actually drawn comic book pages) out in January, reprinting a European adaptation, from Joe Books as well, for $4.99.

And while neither book is original material… we are getting the word of brand new Frozen material in comics. More on that later.
