Comics and graphic novels publishing veteran Jasmine Amiri has joined School Library Journal (SLJ) as graphic novels reviews editor.
Amiri brings more than 10 years of experience working on comics and graphic novels for multiple publishers, including Oni Press and Boom! Studios. She has edited both original and licensed titles, including Eisner-winning and Harvey-nominated books, such as Giant Days by John Allison, Max Sarin, and Lissa Treiman; The Woods by James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas; and Grass Kings by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins. 

“After a months-long search, we were excited to bring Jasmine onboard not only because of the breadth of her experience but also because of her dedication to magnifying marginalized voices,” says SLJ’s reviews editor Shelley Diaz. “We want to continue expanding our coverage of this super-important format, and I can’t wait to see how Jasmine does that.”

Based in Portland, OR, Amiri stepped into the graphic novels reviews editor role on July 10 after Andrew Eliopulos left the position to write full time and be at home with his family.

“Throughout my time in publishing, I have repeatedly witnessed the transformative and positive influence access to graphic novels and manga can have on children and teens” says Amiri. “SLJ has stood as a distinguished publication dedicated to helping librarians and educators in their endeavors, and I’m thrilled and honored to join this talented team to continue providing reviews and valuable resources during this important moment of heightened attention toward comics.”
