Don't let it ever be said (again) that comic books will the minds of youth. We've come a long way from the fear tactics of Dr. Frederic Werthram and Image Comics is going another step by offering a book that teaches kids valuable lessons. Created by Fred Van Lente, Tom Fowler and Jordie Bellaire, Howtoons: (Re)Ignition #1 is the latest in the series co-created by Nick Dragotta.
“I was thrilled and honored Nick and Ingrid [Dragotta] asked me to be part of the Howtoons team,” said Van Lente. “We've come up with a story that should excite and delight both kids and parents and teach them about every known kind of energy through super fun projects. And that Fowler and Bellaire art will make this a post-apocalyptic adventure for the ages (and all ages)!"
Tuck and Celine’s parents put their family in suspended animation to ride out the ecological apocalypse—but when the kids wake up to find Mom & Dad are gone, they have to make their way across an exciting and sometimes scary new world to find the ‘rents… depending on only their Howtoons projects to survive.
Howtoons: (Re)Ignition #1 arrives in stores on August 6 and will be available for $2.99. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code JUN140484. Full press release below.
