Nick Magazine Makes Its Return, and Papercutz makes it Happen…
Papercutz has announced a partnership with Nickelodeon that will give the children’s graphic novel publisher first option to adapt all new Nickelodeon original properties into comics and graphic novels. Papercutz will also begin publishing a new Nickelodeon Magazine.
Papercutz will work with the network at the earliest stages of property development, enabling adaptations for shows to enter the book and comic book markets much closer to the series debut.
The first two properties slated for print adaptation are Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners. There are plans for two more series to debut in the first half of 2016.
Sanjay and Craig follows a 12-year-old boy and his talking snake. The series currently ranks as the #2 animated show across all TV among children 2-11. The first graphic novel will debut in September, to coincide with the premiere of the third season of the show.
Breadwinners follows SwaySway and Buhdeuce, a duo of ducks who fly around in a rocket van delivering bread to hungry waterfowl. The first graphic novel will debut in October.
The new Nickelodeon Magazine will preview comics contents that will be featured in graphic novels, debut new properties, and feature a variety of games, puzzles, and children’s activities.
