Papercutz is pleased to announce that French writer/artist Patricia Lyfoung will be launching the English version of THE SCARLET ROSE next weekend at New York Comic Con!
In volume 1 of THE SCARLET ROSE, “I Knew I’d Meet You,” readers meet Maud, a brave and headstrong girl who relies on her wits and fighting ability in equal measure. When the series begins, Maud is quite happy living her simple life with her father and learning the exciting art of sword fighting. But when her father is murdered, Maud is whisked away from the life she knows by her rich and lordly grandfather. He wants to give her a home – on his terms – and help Maud become a real lady. Yet all Maud wants to do is keep on fighting, so that she can have her revenge on her father’s killer.
THE SCARLET ROSE Vol. 1: “I Knew I’d Meet You” debuted on September 5th to much acclaim, with Publisher’s Weekly saying, “[The] manga-inflected artwork amplifies the romance, drama, and danger while devoting attention to historical detail […] and the heroine’s independence and daring.”

San Diego Comic Con aka ComicCon International is now just three weeks away! If you’re one of the lucky few (thousand) who will be at San Diego this year, don’t pass up the chance to stop by our booth, #1720! Papercutz is taking advantage of the opportunities provided with SDCC to make a couple of exciting announcements about upcoming projects, and to do one of the things we do best: give you free stuff! The centerpiece of our promotional items will be SLICEZ, a free 96 page sampler featuring bite-size chunks of all your favorite Papercutz graphic novels. We’ll also be handing out other goodies like TROLLS movie posters, LUNCH WITCH lunch bags filled with all sorts of creepy concoctions and even some items related to our brand new imprint that launches in 2017 (details are hush hush until the show)!
While we love the freebies, we also want to make sure that fans have a chance to do something that’s become harder and harder at the show in recent years – read great comics! So we’ve set up a special “Reading Nook” in our booth featuring comfy chairs and bookshelves stacked with all your favorite Papercutz graphic novels. When the press of the convention floor becomes too much or you just want to lose yourself in a great graphic novel, come by booth #1720 and remind yourself what being a comics fan is all about!
