Teen Summer Comic Book Premieres

The writers and illustrators of this summer’s APL Presents Super Special No. 3 held their premiere party yesterday here at the Library.  This summer’s staff was comprised of eight teens who each created their own character and together they created the villain, T.E.D. (That Evil Dude).  To see more about the production as well as photos, visit Mike Jordan’s website, bigredapress.com.  If you are interested in obtaining a copy of Super Special No. 3, call or stop by the Reference Desk at the Library.

We are currently talking with Mike Jordan regarding the possibility of creating a quarterly magazine if there is enough interest.  If you like writing and/or illustrating comic books and are between the ages of 12-17, call or stop by the Reference Desk to let Donna know.

Thanks to the staff for their work on this issue: Daisy, Brianna, Madison, Kacie, Cassidy, Bryce, Graesyn and Xander; and special thanks Mike Jordan and Jennifer Babineau for their time and care of this project.
