‘Dog Man: The Scarlet Shedder’ will arrive in 2024

The best-selling graphic novel series returns with a new book next March.

Scholastic has announced that the next book in Dav Pilkey’s mega-hit Dog Man graphic novel series will arrive next March. Dog Man: The Scarlet Shedder follows this year’s Dog Man: Twenty Thousand Fleas Under the Sea, which is the top-selling children’s book of 2023 in North America thus far.

“Dog Man started out as a character I created when I was in second grade, but the series has evolved into a love letter to my parents,” Pilkey said. “Looking back as a kid growing up with dyslexia and ADHD, my parents, who were my best advocates, let me choose whatever books I wanted to read—with no judgment. Their support and love was life-changing and helped me to become the reader, author and illustrator that I am today.”

Fans eager for more from Pilkey won’t have to wait until next year, though; the best-selling Dog Man spinoff series, Cat Kid Comic Club, will return in November. The latest, subtitled Influencers, will continue to promote creativity and comics to his readers, encouraging them to make their own art. “With the Cat Kid Comic Club books, my hope is that kids find joy in reading, appreciate different ways of thinking and collaborating, and find their purpose as they dream up their own stories,” Pilkey said.

Look for Cat Kid Comic Club: Influencers on Nov. 28, and Dog Man: The Scarlet Shedder on March 19.
