All-ages publisher Papercutz announced that it's moving into the original graphic novel business with The Lunch Witch, written and illustrated by Deb Lucke. The Lunch Witch tells the story of Grunhilda, a witch who becomes a school lunch lady when the magic business dries up. The publisher says the title offers a good representation of the type of original work they intend to publish.
Papercutz previously specialized in licensed works, including Garfield, Disney Fairies, Power Rangers, Lego Ninjago, and Nancy Drew, and translations of all-ages European comics, including The Smurfs. The publisher's founder, Terry Nantier, has a strong background in graphic novels as one of the three founders of NBM. Deb Lucke is a writer and illustrator of children's books
I'm going to out on a limb here and say that of all the major comic book news sites, ComicsAlliance is the one that has the most expertise on the subject of the Power Rangers. When the discussion turns to American adaptations of tokusatsu shows where multicolored heroes ride around in giant robots that can do karate, we can speak with an authority that is truly unquestionable. And as a result, we've been pretty interested in the new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers graphic novels from Papercutz ever since they were announced.
Written by Stefan Petrucha with art by PH Marcondes and Laurie E. Smith, the first volume is out now, and while this might sound like faint praise, it's a whole lot better than I was expecting. It might not quite top being Morphenomenal, but it's certainly Morphinabove Average.
