Papercutz Newest Graphic Novels

As the rains began to pour down once more, my grandsons and I visited the latest preview graphic novels.  So much fun!  I prefer the actual novels, but there is always something delightful about reading a comic layout/graphic novel.  Check these out... they are worth the moments of discover, the memories that comes with sharing something fun, and the intriguing allurement to the amazing graphics.

Title: The Secret of Whale Island (Thea Stilton Graphic Novels Series #1), Author: Thea Stilton  Thea is Geronimo's sister and she teaches journalism at Mouseford Academy.  Of course, she is also a Rodent's Gazette correspondent for all things fashion and in the know.  The school year is just beginning and the five "Thea Sisters," are all excited about the latest fashions, the bling, the global news, the dates, and the Mouseford Big Dance.  With the De Vissen's arrival all things are in a "cyclone" of buzz.  Off shore, the mysterious Orca is causing it's own stir.  While the dance is underway..... well you are going to read it to find out more... aren't you?

 
OK... they're back, and they are ready for a new audience.  My youngest son was a MMPR fan and it was great letting my oldest grandson enjoy this graphic connection.
 
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #1: Rita Repulsa's Attitude Adjustment
When an ancient stone idol comes to life and starts blasting everything in its path with a morphing ray, it looks like the world is in pretty deep trouble; but it’s nothing compared to the havoc unleashed when Rita Repulsa gets her hands on it! The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers join the fray, but this new baddie has extra muscle from Squatt and the Putty Patrol. If the team doesn’t get a little help of their own from a trusted friend, this latest mission may be their last!
In 1993, the Power Rangers burst on the scene in an explosion of colorful combat, bizarre monsters, incredible robot battles, and Megazord-sized fun, spawning a global phenomenon and an ever-expanding storytelling universe. Papercutz is proud to present the long-awaited continuing adventures of the team that started it all!

The first pages are styled as a computerized bio folder for each of PR.  Then the adventure begins... 
Limbo is still trying to get all the dudes and dudettes caught up to the newest lingo, which is the 1993 quality connection.  These six martial artists are quick changers, full of wisdom and desire to make even the worst see what's right. So as they are keeping their home area running with kindness... 
A discovery comes up out of the sands....  
"A terrifying cross between monster and robot, the assembled giant shakes
free from the dust of the ages and rises to his full fearsome height!"


 
GERONIMO STILTON #14: "The First Mouse on the Moon"
It's 1969, and the eyes of the whole world are focused on the moon, where the Apollo 11 mission is about to make one giant leap for mousekind. But the time-traveling Pirate Cats are on the scene and they want to sabotage this historic moment with their most audacious and harebrained plan ever. To stop them, Geronimo and his cousin Trap will have to get to the moon first. Fasten your seat belts: a rat-tastic space race is underway!

6.5" x 9", 56pp full-color paper over board, $9.99
ISBN: 978-1-59707-731-6 
This is the best of all the Geronimo's.... or least for my youngest grandson it was.  I prefer the fantasy novel series, so much to look at.  But for my grandson the action packed graphics is way cooler!  Where ever you are headed this summer, add either form of Geronimo to your bag and you will have an adventurous summer filled with outstanding discussion points of interest....

 
Enjoyable reading for everyone
