Drawn & Quarterly and the Transatlantic Agency have sold rights in eight markets to Nick Drnaso’s highly-anticipated 2022 graphic novel ACTING CLASS, of which an 18-page excerpt appeared in the New Yorker in December 2020. Drnaso’s landmark Sabrina was a New York Times Notable Book and the first graphic novel nominated for the Booker Prize. Drnaso was the subject of a New Yorker profile by D.T. Max who remarked: “Like the best fiction, Sabrina makes you do the work of understanding the story.”

United Kingdom English rights to Rowan Cope and Anne Meadows at Granta UK; German rights to Anvar Čukoski at Aufbau; French rights to Ivan Apostolo at Presque Lune; Italian rights to Oscar Glioti at Coconino; Spanish rights to Catalina Mejia at Salamandra Graphic; Polish rights to Kultura Gniewu; Chinese (Simplified) rights to Ginkgo; and Japanese rights to Hayakawa.
