I’ve seen those live shows for kids like Sesame Street, Yo Gabba Gabba, Barney the Dinosaur, Power Ranger, and so many more. And as a parent, though I may represent the minority here, I can say that these shows creep me out for some reason. Even if a miracle happened, and Audrey’s Magic 9 became some world wide phenomenon–I don’t think I would attend a live show. A live action movie or animated version, I would totally support and be into. But “AM9 on Ice” is something I would surely have to call in sick for. ๐Ÿ˜€

This week I’ll be promoting two different books by the same creator. These areย  a very popular webcomics done by the same creator. So there’s a very good chance that you’ve heard of them. Rather than focus on the stories, I’ll simply just provide the links to webcomics. Instead I’d like to focus on the creator. These two stories are very robust! One is called A Redtail’s Dream (which has been completed and no longer updates) and the other is called Stand Still Stay Silent or SSSS. Anyway, the creator Minna Sundberg is a one-woman-army. This young lady draws, colors, writes, letters, promotes, and does everything else under the sun. For both series, she fluctuates between 4 and 5 pages per week of updates. At first I thought surely she couldn’t keep up that pace–especially with the wonderful quality she produces. But she proved me wrong, as she’s now been doing this for years, with no signs of slowing down. I swear she has a workshop of little elves helping her maintain such a maddening pace. Anyway, for anyone not familiar with these titles and looking for a gorgeous, well written long-form story–search no further. There’s a lot to read, as even the books are an inch to two inches thick. ๐Ÿ™‚
