I have a very special article for you today! I am excited to share with you a comic book written and illustrated by a friend of mine, Neil. He and I go WAYYYYY back, I don't want to even think about how many years. We don't get together much anymore, but we have kept in touch via Facebook and I have followed his comic book publishing accomplishments. He has published a number of comic books over the years, and they are all terrific! His amazing storytelling abilities and sense of humor combined with his artistic flair make for very entertaining and endearing comic books for all ages!
But, what I REALLY want you to check out is his most recent book with the adorable title 'Three Little Pigs in a Blanket'. It centers around three little pigs -- their friendship, their fears, and their transformation.
"It's the story of three best friends who are stuck together in a brick house because they're afraid that a scary wolf is outside ready to eat them. Or is there? The friends are Randy, who designs whimsical skyscrapers; Mario, who daydreams about traveling to exotic places; and Joe, who yearns to be a great chef. Each of their unique personalities helps them cope with life's adversities, yet their friendship and their outlooks on life are put to the test by the situation they find themselves in. The book is a two-color 58 page yarn about who we are and who we can be."
The excerpt above was taken from the book's Kickstarter campaign, aimed at raising the funds to help get it published. This book must get published, don't you think? I do! It is actually already complete, so the next step is to get it printed and into as many hands as possible. This Kickstarter campaign will help Neil to do that.
The GREAT thing about this campaign is that if you pledge only $10, not only will you be helping to get the book published, but you will also get a hardcopy of the book mailed to you! And that pledge is actually less than the eventual price of the book on Amazon, so in reality it is a great deal.
Please check out the campaign, watch the short video posted there, and consider supporting a talented artist by helping him get this book published!
All of that talk about pigs in a blanket has me a little hungry! So, as any self-respecting food blogger would do, I tracked down some recipes for pigs in a blanket to share with you. Yum, these all look great! I think I will whip up one of these to enjoy while reading my copy of Three Little Pigs in a Blanket when it arrives!
