For those of you who faithfully follow our blog, waiting on the edge of your seat for news about our whereabouts, you already know that we’re at B-E-Yay this week. Now, I’m here to report, we will ALSO be at Denver Comic-Con! How is this possible, you ask? Well, my friends, Papercutz isn’t a publishing company as much as a vast network of comic book agents around the world just waiting to be activated for top-secret graphic novel missions. And while I’m in New York hobnobbing with literati, Associate Editor Mike Petranek and Chief Tumblr Officer Beth Scorzato will be running things up in the Mile-High City. You should stop by and say hi!
What will our Denver Papercutz fans expect to find at Booth #1029? A host of wonderful things, in fact! Our goal is to make the Papercutz booth at every show we attend the must-visit stop for kids and the parents they have in tow. Not only will many of our fine graphic novels be available for sale, but we’ll be giving away tons of free goodies!
We’ve got a hilarious ARIOL poster:
A less hilarious but much more aquatic SYBIL THE BACKPACK FAIRY poster:
A THEA STILTON bookmark for all you crusading journalist mice out there:
This mysterious NANCY DREW AND THE CLUE CREW sticker:
A totally free SMURFS comic:
A frame-worthy BENNY BREAKIRON mini-print:
And this equally frame-worthy LEGO NINJAGO print:
The eagle-eyed among you may remember this mind-blowing museum piece from last year’s world tour. We have a scant few remaining that we’ll give away for free at every tour stop until we run out, which may be pretty soon, if I remember how fast they flew in 2012. And if you’re in Denver, you’ll be able to get yours signed by this handsome devil:
That’s New York Times Best-Selling cartoonist Jolyon Yates, who not only conceived of and illustrated the above print but also draws the entire LEGO NINJAGO graphic novel series! And if signatures from famous cartoonists aren’t exactly your thing, we’ve got you covered — Jolyon will also be giving out free sketches upon request throughout the weekend! Just stop by our booth each day to find out when, and watch out for those spinning ninja!
Finally, Papercutz has a special treat for kids who stick around until Sunday: the world-renowned Papercutz Sunday Sale! All day Sunday, every book is buy-one-get-one-half-off. We’ve gotten rave reviews for this special deal so often that we’ve decided to make it a permanent fixture; it’s just the perfect way to fill in your SMURFS collection.
See you in Denver, everyone, and most importantly, have a great time!
