With the ongoing boom in the Young Adult graphic novel market, it comes as no surprise that yet another beloved Young Adult series is getting the graphic novel treatment. This time, the adaptation will be of Maggie Stiefvater's bestselling prose novel series The Raven Cycle, which follows the story of four private school boys, a psychic's daughter, and a Welsh legend.

The Raven Cycle will be adapted into graphic novel format by Stephanie Williams (Nubia & the Amazons) and Sas Milledge (Mamo), and the first volume of the series is scheduled to be released Spring 2025 from Viking. The graphic novel adaptation rights were acquired, at auction, by Viking editor Meriam Metoui, with Steifvater represented by Richard Pine and Charlie Olsen at Inkwell Management, Williams represented by herself, and Milledge represented by Jennifer March Soloway at Andrea Brown Literary.
