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
