So with Mid-Ohio Con coming up PANEL is working on releasing a kids themed book. This is what I referenced in Scripting for Kids Comics many moons ago.

This is the back cover Brent Bowman created:


Nifty aint it? I'm working on making an illustrated version of Aesop's Fable the Fox and Crow. Should be fun stuff so I just wanted to share. I love kids books. I recently found a copy of Ten Apples Up On Top for my son. I only had to beg him for two days in a row before he'd let me read it to him. I bet he would have preferred another Star Wars video game. But he seemed to like it just fine once he was willing to give it a chance.
