Papercutz presents the conclusion to the biggest Nancy Drew graphic novel adventure ever. "The High Miles Mystery," winds up with a race that could spell life or death for the girl detective Hinkley is able to build a prototype for a new high-efficiency car based on a recently recovered engine. After seeing Nancy drive a tank and stop a speeding train, he wants her (and mechanic Bess) to drive the prototype in a government-sponsored race. The car with the best fuel efficiency wins a government development contract, money Hinkley and Credo would need to bring the car to production. But someone is determined that Nancy and Bess lose-- at any cost
Stefan Petrucha's been writing comics and novels for - whoa! A really, really long time. A lot of his stuff tends to be pretty scary, like Topp's X-Files comic, or his graphic novel, Kolchak: The Devil in the Details (which was nominated for a Stoker award in 2003!), but then again he's also written over 150 Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck comics for Egmont Publishing in Denmark. He's also signed a four book deal with Penguin's new teen imprint, Razorbill, to revive his incredibly cool comic creation, Squalor, in novel form. He lives in Westchester County, NY with his two daughters, Maia and Margo (both of whom he hopes will be reading these Nancy Drew graphic novels), and his wife and fellow writer, Sarah. Sho is half Japanese and half Korean but her first language is Spanish because she grew up in Spain. She moved from Europe to Vancouver and from Vancouver to Maverix Studios in California, where she works in animation and draws comics that won't leave her enough time to sleep. She is the author of "Sei, Death and Legend" published by Image Comics and is currently also working on her own graphic novel series "ME2" for Tokyopop.
