Papercutz, an imprint of independent comic-book publisher NBM, is releasing american-produced, manga-style versions of Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. NBM founder and CEO, Terry Nantier, told the Book Standard, "We're not trying to imitate Japanese-style stories. We're using the manga style because that's what kids know. We're trying to capitalize on the fact that kids are coming back to comic books in significant numbers.” Thanks to Uryu Ishida for this info.
