FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 3, 2012
New York, NY — Papercutz, the industry’s leading publisher of all-ages graphic novels, has announced a slate of events and special giveaways for kids and families at New York’s biggest comics convention next week. NYCC Kids, the all-ages convention within New York Comic Con, will be held on Sunday, October 14 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
The fan-favorite Papercutz Sketch-A-Thon kicks off at 11:00 at Booth #928, when legendary cartoonist Stan Goldberg (THE THREE STOOGES, NANCY DREW, Archie) will be drawing free sketches for fans until 12:00, with surprise guest artists to be announced afterwards.
Budding super-sleuths will have a lot to deduce at “Nancy Drew, Comics Detective,” a panel delving into the history of Nancy in comics, at 2:45 in Room 1A07. Hosted by Jenn Fisher of the Nancy Drew Sleuth fan network, the panel will feature expert insight from super-fan Todd Latoski, super-librarian Scott Robbins, and the entire NANCY DREW AND THE CLUE CREW creative team: writers Stefan Petrucha and Sarah Kinney and artist Stan Goldberg. CLUE CREW, the new Nancy Drew series from Papercutz, is also premiering at the convention, two weeks before its wide-release date.
Throughout the rest of the weekend, Papercutz will be hosting autograph signings with the creative teams from its POWER RANGERS, NANCY DREW, and PAPERCUTZ SLICES series at Booth #928. Free giveaways will include a convention-exclusive LEGO® NINJAGO print, a NYCC-exclusive POWER RANGERS print, a NANCY DREW preview mini-comic, and an ANNOYING ORANGE “jokebook” mini-comic preview in advance of the December launch of the new series.
“Papercutz loves and supports NYCC Kids!” said Papercutz Editor-In-Chief Jim Salicrup. “Welcoming kids to the greatest comics party around sends the right signal— comics aren’t just for hipsters and nerds, they’re for everyone!”
Popular with reluctant readers and gifted readers alike, Papercutz graphic novels for kids, tweens, and teens include a wide range of genres, including humor, action adventure, mystery, horror, and favorite characters. Papercutz hits include THE SMURFS, LEGO® NINJAGO, POWER RANGERS, NANCY DREW, and more. Papercutz is proud to be the only publisher exclusively dedicated to children’s graphic novels.
