Strathcona County Library’s Comic Book!

ComicWant to have yourself immortalized in the first comic book to ever be set in Strathcona County? Then head here and see how!

From the Indiegogo page:

Drea Boyd is a nice girl, living in a nice suburb — and feeling pretty much disconnected from everything.She finds solace in books and escapes into a fantasy world she creates. There, she’s Boy — a tough, smart cowgirl living in 1910 Alberta.

You can follow the stories in the first edition of “A Cowgirl Named Boy”, a creative collaboration between writers Trent Wilkie and Natasha Deen, and illustrator Dan Schneider.

Just to make it more interesting, this is the first time — in recorded history — that a comic book has been set in Strathcona County, a place that’s celebrating its 120th anniversary this year. We’ve even giving the founding father — Lord Strathcona — a cameo.

You’re supporting the work of independent Alberta artists — and we’re prepared to make it worth your while.

Your dollars will go to the costs of illustration and printing for this limited-edition project. There will only be 250 copies of “A Cowgirl Named Boy” printed, and we plan to release the comic on a high-grade parchment-style paper with a full-color cover.
