Janet Evanovich, the best-selling author behind the series of books about the New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, is entering the world of comic books. She, along with her daughter Alex, will be working on a graphic novel for Dark Horse Comics, based on Ms. Evanovich’s “Metro Girl” and “Motor Mouth” books about a racecar driver named Sam Hooker and a Nascar mechanic named Alexandra Barnaby. “We’re comic book fans; we’re huge Nascar fans,” Ms. Evanovich said in a telephone interview. “It allows me to feed my Nascar addiction and comic book addiction all at the same time.” The book is expected to come out next year. Another writer who made the jump from novels to comics, Brad Meltzer, will be moving into nonfiction with “Heroes for My Son,” a collection of stories about the Wright Brothers, Jim Henson and others. The book, to be published by HarperStudio, is scheduled for release in June 2010, in time for Father’s Day.
