Frankie Comics will be at Comic Con International July 18-23, 2017. Booth 1135 between Disney Publishing Worldwide and Alaska Robotics. (Listed as “Mixtape Comics” in the program guide.) We’ll have copies of Frankie Comics #1-4, Frankie Comics merch and original art, Oath Anthology of New Heroes, Steven Universe: Too Cool for School, Milk and Honey #2, Care Bears Puzzling Path, Summer Brain Quest, and so much more!

We’re just on the backside of the Webcomics Pavilion, straight back from lobby B1. (Keep an eye out for Frankie – she’ll be standing on a tall bookshelf looking out for you.) Hope to see you there! ❤️

Summer Brain Quest is Here!

by Rachel on April 18, 2017, no comments

Summer Brain Quest: Between Grades 1 & 2 is here! Last summer I drew ~300 interior spot illustrations of dragons, fairies, castles, and wildlife for Workman Publishing’s newest Brain Quest educational collection: it’s a workbook, a game, and an outdoor adventure!

As you complete activities, you earn stickers to track your progress on the included map. The book is jam-packed with curriculum-based exercises, bonus challenges, outside activities, over 150 stickers, a summer reading list, and a Brain Quest mini deck.

If you have a child between grades 1 & 2 (or just have passionate nostalgia for after-school workbooks, like me!) you should definitely check this book out.
