Ariol #4: A Beautiful Cow
“One of the best of the best Ariol graphic novels in the Papercutz collection…A fun and sure-to-generate-conversation-starter, readers of all ages will not only fall in love with Ariol (even if his crush Petula might not), but also want to find out more about Ariol and his friends.” —DIAMOND BOOKSHELF

LEGO Legends of Chima #1: High Risk!
“Legends of Chima is filled with fun and adventure that kids of any age will love.” —SLJ’s GOOD COMICS FOR KIDS

“It’s awesome, and it’s even kind of scary, and it’s exactly the type of thing that they’d never really be able to do on the show. [The creators] manage to do a book that’s not only consistent, but consistently well done … Overall, it’s a solid package and a great first offering.” —COMICS ALLIANCE
