If you have any updates for the list, please get in touch!

Every agent listed has their own submission guidelines, so be sure to check out their sites and go a step further; if they’ve got a blog, read it, go through their “query” tags, see what they react well to, what they turn down, & how they want graphic novel queries formatted. Very few accept email attachments. Some want 5 pages linked to with the query, some want the first chapter (& later ask for a pitch/script for the rest), some want completed art for the full project. Some specialize in nonfiction, others in MG or YA.

Know what they’re looking for & follow their guidelines! It’s a short list compared to all of the literary agents out there, and you don’t want one of the few who represent graphic novels to delete your query before they even read it.

Good luck!
