PAPERCUTZ DEBUTS BARBIE GRAPHIC NOVELS WITH TWO NEW SERIES
Volume One of
Barbie is available now
Volume One of Barbie Puppies will be released on November 29th.
Barbie, the world’s #1 fashion doll, is making her debut in two new series from Papercutz this fall. With two new original graphic novel series, Barbie and Barbie Puppies, fans of Mattel’s classic doll can now experience all of the adventures of Barbie and her friends like never before!
Barbie Graphic Novel Vol. 1, “Fashion Superstar,” which is available now, finds Barbie diving into the high-stakes world of fashion. As Barbie pursues her dream, she meets a diverse bunch of all-new friends that can help her… and some others that may actually try to end her fashion career before it even starts!
The second of the new Barbie graphic novels is “Puppy Party” from the Barbie Puppies series, which will be released on November 29. Based on the popular Barbie Puppies DVD films “The Great Puppy Adventure” and “A Puppy Chase,” “Puppy Party” tells the story of Barbie and her sisters entering their pups – Honey, Rookie, Taffy and DJ – in a dog show in the city. But when the puppies get lost, the adventure begins!
These new graphic novels featuring the life and adventures of Barbie are just what young readers have been waiting for. While the Barbie franchise has taken many other forms in music, movies and more, this is the first time in over 25 years that this globally-recognized figure will be the subject of a graphic novel. These fun stories let Barbie fans enjoy her adventures in one of the fastest growing mediums in kids’ media and they’re sure to be a perennial favorite in libraries, schools and homes across America.
A third graphic novel series, Barbie Starlight, is slated for release later this year.
My daughter was very excited to receive these books. She is a big Barbie fan. These books are Comic Series books , so they are full of sharp and colorful images with words in word bubbles. Barbie Fashion Superstar contains 63 pages, and Barbie Puppy Party contains 60 pages. We recently went on a Thanksgiving vacation and she brought these books with her. She loved reading them in the car and hotel, and she has been asking for more. These books would make great holiday gifts for any girl of any age! Check them out today!
