Please help because I am confused. While browsing Papercutz.com, I came across comic books?! For $2.95, there are 3 comic books listed different than the GNs.

http://www.papercutz.com/hb/hb_comic2.html

I clicked on "where to find" and there's some ordering information on there. Have you seen them?? Why/how are they different??

I realize it is probably the one book spread over 3 comic books, but I didn't even know these existed!





I'm not on here as much or I just come on for a few moments. So I trying to keep up with posts. Sorry for being MIA. I've been off on a mission with Frank and Joe! :)

Well, most graphic novels you see in stores actually aren't graphic novels. They're a selection of comic book issues that are collected into book form. It's the same for the first Hardy Boys graphic novel.

Papercutz originally planned to publish a comic book series but it was discontinued after three issues and replaced by a graphic novel series. Those first three issues were collected into one book and published as the first title in the graphic novel series.

For more info read this article. Under "Publication history".

If you come across these comics, you might want to look at the letter's pages in the back.  You might just find someone you all know. Maybe.  :)

I do seem to recall seeing that some time ago in the letters page. Nice! :)
I had the original 3 comic book issues when they first came out, but I was content to replace them with the graphic novel, especially since the first issue corrected some errors in those 3 comic books.

Aren't two of the three issues still available from Papercutz?

You might try www.milehighcomics.com - You can get lots of great out-of-print comics there.  :)
Or just check your local comic books shop.

Yes, Papercutz offers the 2nd and 3rd one. Thanks for the link too. I have a hunch I won't find them around me in a store.

You never know. I've found all kinds of titles in the dollar bargain bins... ;D  - you just have to be willing to search for quite a while with those

BARGAIN BINS?! HBs shouldn't be in the bargain bin! I would really like to back to the store I got a bunch of older bluespines for $5-$10. Those were a great find!

I'll probably use the internet before I search comic stores. I don't even know of a comic store near me. :/

Well, that's where they usually put older titles and the comics did first release in 2004.
