Preview: Annoying Orange
With a lineup that includes Ninjago, the Three Stooges, and Power Rangers, the Papercutz folks are all about having fun. And what could be more fun than Annoying Orange? Here’s a look at their Annoying Orange graphic novel, due out in stores next week.
In case you missed it (easy to do if you’re an adult), Annoying Orange is a web video series about a talking orange who annoys his fellow fruits in various ways. A certain segment of the population (seven-year-old boys) finds it hilarious, and a lot of adults enjoy it too (I first heard about it from my boss). The original videos went viral and have spawned an animated television show, a video game, and sundry other products, including, as of next week, a graphic novel.
