EXXXCLUSIVE: A Suicide Bomber Sits in the Library Cancellation Puts Rest Of

Will Abrams still release A School Shooter Sits In A Classroom though?



Back in August, Abrams Publishing announced that its imprint Abrams ComicsArts would be publishing A Suicide Bomber Sits In The Library, written by Jack Gantos with illustrations by Dave McKean. The book centers around a suicide bomber who changes his mind once he discovers the joys of reading.

When a young boy enters a library wearing an explosive vest hidden underneath his lovely new red jacket, he has only one plan on his mind.
But as he observes those around him becoming captivated by the books they are reading, the boy can't help but question his reason for being there. 

Due to backlash from members of the Muslim community, the publisher decided to pull the title from its list of releases. 

But this cancellation puts the rest of the planned books in the "Sitting" series in jeopardy. The titles, which were supposed to be announced in an Outhouse EXXXCLUSIVE, are listed below.
