Return of the teen detectives: Newsarama also checks in on the new Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series from NBM Publishing's Papercutz division:

“Creating original graphic novels for the tween market featuring popular established characters. When the opportunity presented itself for Papercutz to obtain the graphic novel rights to the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, we jumped on it! We've got a few other properties in development and hope to announce those in the months ahead.”

The Hardy Boys will be released first as a monthly comic, beginning in November, while Nancy Drew will debut in February as an original graphic novel. The Hardy Boys collected edition also will be released that month.
