New Monthly Magazine is “First Fruit” of new Papercutz-Nickelodeon Deal
Papercutz, the industry leader in children’s graphic novel publishing is proud to announce the debut of the first publication to emerge from their “First Look” deal with kids’ media powerhouse Nickelodeon– the all-new monthly NICKELODEON MAGAZINE. The first issue of the new publication will be released today, June 23rd and the magazine features a mix of comics, games, puzzles and “behind the scenes features” starring Nickelodeon’s animated characters. The launch issue features hit properties SANJAY AND CRAIG and BREADWINNERS in all-new comic stories.
The new magazine will provide a mix of content but the focus is definitely on comics, with over two-thirds of each issue devoted to comic book material. The new version of the magazine will preview the comics content that will be featured in upcoming Papercutz graphic novels, debut new properties in comics form and also feature a variety of games, puzzles and other activities for kids.
“Nickelodeon has always been known for creating great comics material”, noted Papercutz Editor-in-Chief Jim Salicrup. “And we’re proud to continue that tradition with our new publication. I’m personally excited by the opportunity to get the great work of our writers and artists out in front of the biggest possible audience possible. The magazine is going to be a great way for kids to sample our graphic novels and be introduced to some of the fantastic Nickelodeon characters. It’s also a great way for us to put comics in places that haven’t seen this type of material in quite a while.”
“Nickelodeon characters already reach millions of kids worldwide”, explained Sven Larsen, VP of Marketing for Papercutz. “But we wanted to help them grow their audience and give existing viewers new opportunities to enjoy their favorite shows. The new NICKELODEON MAGAZINE is another great way for fans to experience the brand and spend more time with characters they love!”
