It is the mission of Red 5 Comics to produce smart, fun-filled comics that bring joy to comic readers of any age. In the tradition of titles like Eisner-nominated “Atomic Robo” and YALSA-winning “We Kill Monsters”, comes the all-new exploits of the under-sized and over-personalitied “Bodie Troll”.
In the fairytale village of Hagadorn lurks Bodie Troll, a fuzzy little grump who wants to be big and scary, but is doomed to be cute and cuddly. But what Bodie lacks in terror he makes up for in mischief. Silly and suspenseful adventures await just beyond his bridge!
“Bodie Troll” is the creation of cartoonist Jay P. Fosgitt, the writer and artist for such graphic novels as “Little Green Men”, “Dino Duck” and “Old McMonster’s Haunted Farm”. His whimsical art style graced “Dreamworks Animation Magazine” and the book “Team Cul De Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line at Parkinson’s”.
“Fans of such classic works as Jay Ward’s ‘Fractured Fairy Tales’, Jim Henson’s ‘Muppets’, and Maurice Sendak’s ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ will feel at home in the wild, warm and whimsical romp of Bodie’s adventures,” said Fosgitt.
Bodie will be introduced to Red 5 Comic’s largest-ever audience as he will share pages with Atomic Robo in this May’s Free Comic Book Day issue. Retailers will want to have copies of Bodie Troll #1 on hand for the event.
As Red 5 is an independent publisher, the best way to ensure your copy of “Bodie Troll” this spring is to pre-order it before February 28 from your comic shop using order code FEB131119. “Bonnie Lass #1” of the four-issue series is a spotlight item in July’s Diamond Preview catalog and set for release on April 17, 2013 for just $2.99.
