Tokyopop is gearing up to release more graphic novels based on the Nickelodeon series All Grown Up and The Amanda Show, as well as the upcoming Paramount/Nickelodeon theatrical feature The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. The new full-color cine-manga titles will hit stores just in time for spring.
All Grown Up, a spin-off of Nickelodeon’s hit Rugrats franchise, has the former toddlers tackling middle school misadventures. The series is produced by Rugrats creators Klasky Csupo Inc.
Also aimed at the pre-teen crowd, The Amanda Show offers a twisted brand of sketch-comedy starring Nick’s Amanda Bynes.
The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie takes the loveable yellow cube and his underwater pals to the big screen with a caper film that sends SpongeBob and Patrick on a quest to return the stolen crown of King Neptune. The pic was produced at Nickelodoen Studios and is co-directed by series creator Stephen Hillenburg and Sherm Cohen. It bows on the big screen on Nov. 19.
All three Cine-Manga titles will carry a suggested retail price of $7.99 per volume.
