The latest news from PAPERCUTZ: SDCC, Trolls, and more
Hi BC Refugees readers,
Happy Monday! It's pretty dreary here in New York City, so we're going to try our best to brighten the day!
This weekend, Papercutz was at San Diego Comic Con, where we held a panel celebrating the launch of our new GUMBY comic (and of course celebrating Gumby himself!) Above is a picture of Gumby and Pokey hanging with the crowd outside the panel, and at our website:
saying, "Osborne and Fish deliver a heartrending YA drama with this graphic novel, showcasing how the building blocks of a fairy tale can be reassembled into something new and enlightening." The book will be released in the next couple of weeks!
On August 8th, Papercutz will release the third volume of our TROLLS series, "Party with the Bergens!" Based on the wildly popular movie (which is, of course, based on the wildly popular dolls), our TROLLS series has been a hair-raising hit!
In this all-new, 64-page graphic novel, the Trolls are being thrown a surprise pizza party by none other than...The Bergens! But when the tomato sauce, cheese and dough disappear unexpectedly, they improvise and invent their own pizzas using gummy worms, frosting, sprinkles, and, of course, chocolate! It'll either be the best party ever or a total disaster...
It's an exciting time to be a TROLLS fan! We know it's a bit early to start thinking about the holidays, but this winter, NBC will air Trolls Holiday, a funtastic comedy-musical special starring your faves Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick! And the saga of the Trolls and the Bergens will continue beyond that with a Trolls television series, airing on Netflix next year! But before all that, you can check out your favorite hirsute party animals in TROLLS: "Party with the Bergens!"
