The kind folks at Papercutz have supplied ComicList with their solicitations for comics and other products featured in the July 2008 Previews, scheduled to ship September 2008.
The new BIONICLE graphic novels from Papercutz — a top publisher of comics for kids — are a huge success, says Papercutz publisher Terry Nantier. BIONICLE is selling fast in Barnes & Noble and Borders bookstores, “far outstripping the launch of Nancy Drew, our best-selling series so far,” Nantier says. And September brings even more BIONICLE!
BIONICLE graphic novel #3: “City of Legends”
By Greg Farshtey and Randy Elliott
It is a time to rejoice. The Matoran (the people of the island Mata Nui) have rediscovered their original homeland, Metru Nui, and are preparing to return there for the first time in 1000 years. It is also a time to reveal secrets, as the Turaga — the rulers of Mata Nui — reveal that they were once both the guardians of Metru Nui and the super-powered heroes called Toa. In Metru Nui, they uncovered the evil creature Makuta, but would they be too late to stop him from plunging both the Matoran and the godlike Great Spirit into unending sleep?
