Kids Read Comics 2012

Team Science is hard at work!

Thanks to everyone who came out to Ann Arbor for the annual Kids Read Comics Convention! I had a great time helping kids get exciting about reading and creating comics as well as hobnobbing with my fellow local artists. Can’t wait to do it again next year!

One of the coolest things to happen at the convention was receiving a free comic made by one of the kids attending. He had come on Saturday and got so excited about making comics that he went home and made some to hand out on Sunday! That’s a great lesson to learn right there– if you want to do something like create comic or make art the best way to get started is to just dive right in.

Showing off my stylish new Science Girl button!

Over at the Team Science table we were handing out a bunch of free stuff, like an all-new SCIENCE GIRL short-story, “THE MAGIC SCIENCE OF THE ROBOCORN.”  If you happened to pick up a copy then what you really received was a free sneak preview at our upcoming SCIENCE GIRL book SCIENCE GIRL: ANTHOLOGY OF AWESOME! We’re hoping to debut the full-size book this fall, so keep your eyes peeled!

We were also debuting our new SCIENCE GIRL buttons featuring Edie’s insignia. Our first batch was in red, but we’re hoping to add a whole rainbow of colors further down the road so you can show off you support for SCIENCE GIRL in style!

A very big thanks to the folks at the Ann Arbor District Library and Green Brain Comics for putting such an amazing event together and for doing so much for the local comic community in the Metro-Detroit area. And of course, thanks to everyone who came by and said hello or picked up a free comic. Drop us a line and let us know what your favorite part of the convention was!
