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!”
Paul Scarlata

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

A lethal virus has struck the planet Nibiru, and it is gradually killing its population. It was spread during the Species Wars in order to kill the deadly Annunaki.

Planet Snowmania’s snowman brothers (the Snowmanilas!) are enjoying some funtastic treasure-hunting adventures when they encounter a Snowgorilla military unit, some Snowti-ger Pirates, a Snowtiger Mermaid and a bunch of Ninja Sharks that are all after the same treasures.

This greed for the treasures will ultimately doom the planet, unless the Snowmanilas are fast enough to find and prevent the destruction that is rapidly approaching.

Monsters, cryogenics, relationships, religion, war, dragons, cannibalism, angels, demons, space exploration, aliens, beans, eyes, traffic cones, gods, Chicago, pot plants, robots, a dive bar on Mars, goblins, heart break, July, cake, bees, geese, peacock flavour crisps and time travel are just some of the things you’ll find in this eclectic collection of flash fiction and poetry.

Originally written for the Elephant Words website where writers are challenged to produce a new short piece of writing each week inspired by a picture posted to the site, this series of short stories, scenes and poems charts the musings and preoccupations of award winning writer, Ian Sharman.

At times incredibly dark and deeply personal but often very, very silly.
