Frank and Joe Hardy finish up a case helping a fellow ATAC (American Teens
Against Crime) agent, whose sharp-eyed fans may recognize despite her Alias.
Things seem to quiet down when ATAC sends Frank and Joe undercover to
investigate a new Mall opening in Bayport, due to several suspicious
accidents there. But things get exciting when the night before the big
opening, Joe, Frank, and seven others are mysteriously locked in the mall
-with a murderer on the loose. If that wasn't enough, everything that could
go horribly wrong in a mall, does. A flood caused by water beds. An
electrocution at an electronics shop. A bow and arrow used to kill in the
Sporting Goods store. A runaway elevator. A damsel in distress in the dress
shop. Fire in the food court. And much, much more.  Ages 8 to 12. Papercutz is the exciting new graphic novel publisher that's building a huge following among the next generation of comics fans.  Even the most reluctant readers are becoming addicted to the Papercutz approach of giving classic characters a modern makeover!  Each Papercutz graphic novel features comics stories drawn in the style of the popular Japanese comics known as manga, and beautifully rendered with state of the art color.  While educators rave about the  high quality of the Papercutz writing and artwork, readers 8 and up are simply enjoying the great adventures found in each fun-filled volume.  Be sure to check out other Papercutz titles such as Nancy Drew, Totally Spies, and Zorro.
Two time Wizard-award winning writer Scott Lobdell is most closely associated with his seven-year run on Marvel's Uncanny X-Men, as well as his co-creation with artist Chris Bachalo of Marvel’s Generation X. He has also worked on series such as Wildcats, The Darkness, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Kiss! While keeping one foot firmly planted in the comic book industry with such creator-owned properties as Ball and Chain and The Stray, Lobdell is currently writing television pilots, direct to DVD movies (for comic book legend Stan Lee) and feature films in Hollywood. Things heat up when the night before the opening, Frank, Joe, and eight others are mysteriously locked in the mall—with a murderer on the loose. That is when everything goes crazy: water beds cause a flood, sporting goods become deadly weapons, the electronics store goes haywire, an elevator runs out of control, there is a fire in the food court, and there is even danger in the dress shop. Can Frank and Joe, along with the others, make it through the night alive? Papercutz is a graphic novel publisher that is building a following among the next generation of comics fans, giving classic characters a modern makeover.  While educators rave about the  high quality of the Papercutz writing and artwork, readers 8 and up are simply enjoying the great adventures found in each fun-filled volume.  Each Papercutz graphic novel features comics stories drawn in the style of the popular Japanese comics known as manga.  "When the Hardy Boys series began in 1927, the brothers were helping Dad figure out who robbed a neighbor.

Daniel Rendon Yes I am a Cat! Just don' tell it to my dog! I was born on February 6. I have always been an avid reader, so I think it's only natural that I found comics fascinating. I just love how comics merge both writing and drawing, how they let you experiment new paths, but most important they give you the opportunity to create your own worlds and share them with others!
