We've been publishing great kids' graphic novels for over a decade!

We began publishing great graphic novels for kids all the way back in 2005 (a time when kids graphic novels were a rarity). Since then we’ve published everything from old favorites like THE HARDY BOYS and NANCY DREW to hits like THE SMURFS and GERONIMO STILTON. Whether it’s European imports like ARIOL, licensed titles like BARBIE and TROLLS or original graphic novels like FUZZY BASEBALL or ANNE OF GREEN BAGELS, there truly is something for everyone in the Papercutz line up.</p><p>But don’t take our word for it.

Terry Nantier

Terry Nantier


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.

Jim Salicrup


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.
