THE BIG APPLE'S BIG SHOW
Of course, before we head to Maryland, we'll be headed to the Javits Center for one of our biggest shows of the year. Our hometown New York ComicCon seems to get bigger every year and Papercutz is rising to the challenge of getting our message out to over 100,000 readers! Like ComicCon International, the centerpiece of our promotional efforts will be our SLICEZ sampler, designed to expose fans to the widest possible selection of Papercutz series. But that's not the only arrow in our promotional quiver. We'll be handing out BARBIE stickers, CHARMZ buttons, a special TROLLS mini-poster/activity sheet, and LUNCH WITCH lunch bags featuring mini-comics and more. If you're lucky you may even get to take a selfie with one of our TROLLS wigs!
It's all happening at the Papercutz booth, #2245!
Sunday is Kids' Day at NYCC and we'll have a variety of talent appearing at our booth to make sure Papercutz's young readers have an optimal con experience. Among the top tier talent we'll have signing at our stand are Ryan Jampole, artist of GERONIMO STILTON & THEA STILTON, James Kaminski,artist of SANJAY AND CRAIG, Stuart Moore, writer of THE ZODIAC LEGACY, Amy Chu, writer of THE GREAT COSMIC RACE and David Gallaher & Steve Ellis, creators of THE ONLY LIVING BOY.
