Papercutz has announced that it will debut its new Geronimo Stilton graphic novels at the San Diego Comic Con this week. The Geronimo tales features a mild mannered newspaper editor (who happens to be a mouse) traveling through time to stop the evil Pirate Cats from changing history.

The first Geronimo Stilton graphic novel — “The Discovery of America” — sees Geronimo and his thrill-seeking sister Thea meet Christopher Columbus and must save him from the Pirate Cats. The second graphic novel, “The Secret of the Sphinx,” puts Geronimo and Thea even further into the past. The Pirate Cats are angry at the ancient Egyptians for putting a man’s face on the Sphinx’s catlike body. Geronimo has to stop them from destroying the Sphinx, or worse! The third graphic novel, “The Colosseum Con,” will appear in November.

Each of the books will be 56-pages in length, and features a cover price of $9.95 US.  The first two books will arrive in August.  For those attending the comic convention, art from the first book will be on display at the Papercutz booth (#2046), with more unveiled during the Papercutz presentation on Sunday, July 26 from 3:00 to 4:00 in Room 2.
