Patricia Lyfoung to Launch THE SCARLET ROSE at NYCC

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.”

Papercutz’s Plans for SPX 2017!

This weekend, Papercutz will be pulling double duty at both the Brooklyn Book Festival and the Small Press Expo, the latter of which will be held at MARRIOTT NORTH BETHESDA HOTEL & CONFERENCE CENTER in Bethesda Maryland.

If you’re in town for the SPX, be sure to stop by Booth G1-2, where illustrious illustrator Kata Kane will be premiering ANA AND THE COSMIC RACE! Jeff Whitman, our assistant managing editor and one of the writers of GUMBY will also be at the booth, signing books and gabbing with fans!

Kata will be signing at the Papercutz booth at 5-6 p.m. on Saturday and from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday (though she’ll be taking a break from 2-3, girl’s gotta eat!)

Hope to see you all there! And if you can’t make it to SPX, we’ll also be at the Brooklyn Book Festival this weekend! (And if you can’t make it to either one of those shows, we won’t make you feel too bad for missing out!)

And a hopeful teen races for control of a vast space empire. Guided by moderator Gregg Schigiel (PIX: Too Super for School), authors Mark Siegel (5 Worlds Book 1: The Sand Warrior), Marcus Emerson (Recess Warriors and Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja), and Amy Chu (Ana and the Cosmic Race) reveal the secrets to writing and illustrating stories in which heroes rise, villains fall, and destinies are fulfilled.
