Society of Smiles #1

When the jaded and spoiled Miles Thrashington-Blight hears a university rumor about the ultra-secret Society of Smiles, he can’t wait to join. But between the demon worship, eternal torment and decades of exploitation by his best friend Toby, maybe this is one exclusive club Miles should have stayed away from.

Markosia Spotlight On: Playground: Attack Of The Gurgle Bots

covers_new.inddEach week we’ll be turning the spotlight on one of the many quality graphic novels from our extensive back catalogue.

This week it’s the turn of Playground: Attack Of The Gurgle Bots.

Fun for the whole family, Playground and Hobby Squad encourage a return to outdoor activities and hands-on hobbies through the use of timeless and, in some cases, forgotten childhood playground games, unplugged/hands-on hobbies, and healthier eating. Playground and Hobby Squad send the subtle message to kids, moms and dads alike to rediscover what it means to simply have fun getting dirty on the playground of life!

Felix loves vegetables more than most little boys. On his first day at a new school, Felix eats a glowing stalk of broccoli in the Valley Village Elementary School’s Organic Garden that happens to be adjacent to the school’s playground. Felix is imbued with the powers of the Playground. From now on, any playground game is far more than a game when Felix plays.

Principal Strict is Felix’s nemesis and he’s looking for a new informant/hall monitor. He has the ability to give ice cream headaches, and too much candy stomach aches to anyone who stands in his way. Felix and Principal Strict slug it out on the playground with the happiness of all the students at Valley Village Elementary in the balance.

“When I met Adam Rose, we became fast friends due to our mutual love of comics. We were both working on personal projects, hoping some day to not just enjoy and consume comics, but to produce them, as well. While I am still noodling away on mine, Adam has, through much time, love, blood, sweat, and tears, brought his first project into the world. With ”Playground: Attack of the Gurgle Bots”, he and artist Charles Toefield have created a first issue with punchy art, engaging characters, and a world to build on. It’s a comic book they should be proud of, and I’m looking forward to reading issue number two and beyond!”

“When I was a kid, I wanted to be awesome. With super- powers. I achieved that goal. Read this book, and you might, too.”

“Blood Under a Helmet.” That’s the title of the latest chapter in “The Case of the Missing Trunk.” No spoilers, though! You’ll have to find out for yourself what that enigmatic title means! We can guarantee that it will involve blood—and a helmet. That our promise to you, gentle reader! In the meantime, try on these teasers for size: Pearl, everyone’s favourite bad girl, takes Alfred into her confidence, which might be a HUGE mistake! For both of them! Alfred desperately wants that trunk back, don’t you know? And maybe—just maybe—Pearl can help him retrieve it. But at what price? Whoa! Looks like Max the Bookie’s got the trunk! How on Earth did he get it? And why can’t he get it open? Only one way to find out! Plunk down a measly $1.99, that’s how! What else do you get for your hard-earned dough? How about one of the greatest bump-and-run car chases in comics’ history? Not enough? How about Jake the Snake? What’s he know about the trunk? Plenty! Oh, yeah—Danny and Harry are in there, too. So’s Benny the Snitch. He’s got some choice information for Danny and Harry—just enough to get them killed! All that, in 23 pages? For $1.99? How do we do it? We have absolutely no idea—but we’re gonna keep on doin’ it, kids!
