Popular with reluctant readers and gifted readers alike, Papercutz graphic novels for kids, tweens, and teens include a wide range of genres, including humor, action adventure, mystery, horror, and favorite characters. Papercutz is proud to be the only publisher exclusively dedicated to children’s graphic novels. We work every day to introduce young readers to the imaginative wonders waiting to be discovered in comics.

Editor-In-Chief Jim Salicrup started his career as a teen at Marvel Comics under apprenticeship with Stan Lee, eventually becoming editor of their flagship Spider-Man line where he relaunched the character in a bold new look that proved extremely popular, selling over two million copies. Hired away by Topps, he founded their comic book line by acquiring top licenses like The X-Files, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. While at Marvel, Jim was instrumental in creating Spidey Super Stories, the first comic specifically designed for beginning readers. He brings this devotion to popular storytelling and early literacy to the entire Papercutz line.
