Terry Nantier from Papercutz tells us that The Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys graphic novel releases (see 'Papercutz Graphic Novel Line Kicks Off in February') are gaining a great deal of positive press in mainstream media. In newspapers, one story recently ran in the Chicago Sun Times and another is expected next week in USA Today. Additional coverage is expected in the next few weeks in Teen Newsweek, Teen Magazine, Newsday and Parenting. A strong press campaign on top of these venerable brands can only help expand sales of the product and the category.
Papercutz will also be releasing quarterly manga-sized Zorro graphic novels beginning this August (see 'Zorro Graphic Novel Planned for August').
