Daisy California by Ricky Sprague
Ed here: My friend Ricky Sprague is a witty and very clever writer-cartoonist whose work ranges from the whimsical to the very dark (his blog Child-Murdering Robot childmurderingrobot.blogspot.com/ manages to be both hilarious and outrageous frequently). Here's some of his latest work, two issues of a comic book that won me over by page four. Great work.
Daisy California issues available now!
You can purchase the first two volumes of the "Daisy California" comic book that I am creating with my seven year-old niece. It's her character, based on her, and her ideas. If you like little children and you like superheroes and you like comic books, then this should, in theory, be right up your alley. If you are unsure, you can visit the Daisy California website (consider "liking" her on facebook!) to preview the two available issues.
The "Preview Issue," in which Daisy California battles the nefarious villain Stranger Danger, can be purchased here.
The first issue, in which Daisy California battles the nefarious villain Nuketard, and along the way meets the superhero Purple Extravagance and the supervillain Loquacious Lexus Looney, can be purchased here.
These issues are guaranteed to go up in value. Not monetary value, but sentimental/artistic/historical value, as in you'll be able to tell your grandchildren that you got in on the ground floor of what is sure to become a major pop culture phenomenon, etc.
