8-Year-Old Nancy Drew Stars in New Graphic Novel Series

Papercutz will release a new Nancy Drew graphic novel series about the famous detective’s early years. Since 2005, the publisher has released 23 Nancy Drew comic titles. Volume No. 1 of Nancy Drew and The Clue Crew is titled “Small Volcanoes.”

Husband-and-wife writing duo Stefan Petrucha and Sarah Kinney will write the stories; both have worked with Papercutz on the Nancy Drew comics. Artist Stan Goldberg will illustrate.

Here’s more from the release: ”Drew family’s top-secret case files once again to reveal the mysteries that abounded in River Heights when Nancy was only eight-years-old. Her best friends George, Bess, and Ned are still helping her out, and their friendship is almost as important to solving these middle-grade crimes as their unparalleled smarts.”

Judge Sonia Sotamayor’s Secret

nancydrew.jpgWhile introducing his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sonia Sotamayor, President Barack Obama pointed out the judge’s fondness for the Nancy Drew detective series.

That’s a ringing endorsement from the U.S. president on the 80th anniversary of the teen sleuth, who now has over 200 titles in print from Grosset & Dunlap, Simon & Schuster, and graphic novel publisher Papercutz. The detective joins a number of other authors on the illustrious Barack Obama Book Club.

Check out his comments here: “Judge Sotomayor’s interest in the law was sparked as a young girl by reading the Nancy Drew series. And that when she was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 8, she was informed that people with diabetes can’t grow up to be police officers or private investigators like Nancy Drew. In essence, she was told she’d have to scale back her dreams.”
