Welcome to Papercutz!
Meet the Papercutz Team!
Inspired by the success of the graphic novel format in France, where one book in every five sold is a graphic novel, CEO and Publisher Terry Nantier decided to import this concept to the U.S. in the 1970s through the founding of NBM, at a time when comics for adults were a rarity. Becoming a leading indie comics press and one of the most highly respected houses in what has become known as “literary comics,” NBM has grown steadily ever since. In 2005, Terry recognized that the tides had turned and children’s comics had become a rarity; he founded Papercutz to meet this need.
Digital Marketing Coordinator
Arthur Field started his career in digital marketing knocking on brick and mortars in the small town of Warwick, NY. After a year of working with mom and pop shops, Arthur got his first agency job working with internationally known companies like G-Shock, Casio Education, Orange County Choppers, W&W Glass and influencers such as Nick Diaz and JCVD. After making the transition to NYC, Arthur soon found a new home at legendary kids graphic novel publisher, Papercutz where he is currently creating and managing all digital advertising efforts and promotion.
Editor-In-Chief Jim Salicrup started his career as a teen at Marvel Comics under apprenticeship with Stan Lee, eventually becoming editor of their flagship Spider-Man line where he relaunched the character in a bold new look that proved extremely popular, selling over two million copies. Hired away by Topps, he founded their comic book line by acquiring top licenses like The X-Files, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. While at Marvel, Jim was instrumental in creating Spidey Super Stories, the first comic specifically designed for beginning readers. He brings this devotion to popular storytelling and early literacy to the entire Papercutz line.
