I keep hearing from Australia that there are some bookshops who've been told, or are telling people, I'm not signing graphic novels but only signing prose. Not sure where this is coming from, but it wasn't checked with me and won't be the case. And not all Australia details are in yet -- not sure why not, but I'll post them as we get closer.
