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 — â€œThe Discovery of Americaâ€ — sees Geronimo and his thrill-seeking sister Thea meet Christopher Columbus and must save him from the Pirate Cats. The second graphic novel, â€œThe Secret of the Sphinx,â€ puts Geronimo and Thea even further into the past. The Pirate Cats are angry at the ancient Egyptians for putting a manâ€™s face on the Sphinxâ€™s catlike body. Geronimo has to stop them from destroying the Sphinx, or worse! The third graphic novel, â€œThe Colosseum Con,â€ will appear in November.
Each of the books will be 56-pages in length, and features a cover price of $9.95 US.Â The first two books will arrive in August.Â 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.
