Links: Mirka Meets a Meteorite—and more!
This won’t be out until next May, but it sounds intriguing: Writer Chris Northrop and artist Jeff Stokeley are working on The Reason for Dragons, a coming-of-age story about a teenager who has an encounter with a knight—who lives in his garage.
Barry Deutsch talks about Hereville: How Mirka Met A Meteorite, and how it differs from the first volume of the series—more cars, fewer footnotes, and some extra help from a new artist.
I interviewed two creators who have kid-friendly projects in my recent Kickstarter columns, which cover Kickstarter and IndieGoGo campaigns: Josh Elder, who has successfully funded a new edition of Mail Order Ninja, and Alexis Fajardo, who is looking to finance the third volume of his Kid Beowulf series.
