The Adventures of Jack Scratch - Reclaiming comics for kids.

NZ$ 6,831

Together with Cap’n Catnip - the world’s greatest mariner - and his Uncle Silver, Jack is about to embark on a quest to find the fabled treasure of the HISS- PANIOLA! 

And he’ll encounter a whole lot of trouble along the way. 

.........................................

We are so excited to launch the first in the series of The Adventures of Jack Scratch – The Quest for the Hiss-paniola by amazing illustrator and author Craig Phillips. 

Bringing back the love of comic books to a new generation of children, like we experienced with comic books such as Asterix and Tin Tin, which are still very much enjoyed today. 

Several years ago Craig’s daughter asked him to make a book just for her. When he asked her what she’d like it to be about she said “cats!”, then “pirates!” and then, “pirate-cats!” and so Jack Scratch was born. The Adventures of Jack Scratch was developed over many meal times, and deep discussions, about all the types of things pirate cats might get up to. 

 

If you have a child that likes cats OR pirates OR pirate cats, then they will love this book! 

This first book, of the planned series, helps to establish some of the main characters, that will carry through into the following books. 

And the second book ‘The Curse of the Kraken!’ is already well under way.

.........................................

Comics are cool, we all know that! Comic books are FUN! 

If something is fun for children, they will do it again and again! 

Comics are a great way to engage young children into a real love of books. They are interesting and exciting and help develop their imaginations. Comic books really do offer a lot for children. You don’t need to be able to read to enjoy a comic book, which is great for young children and also children that have trouble reading, due to learning disorders like dyslexia. 

We are RECLAIMING comics for kids! This industry is set to explode because KIDS LOVE COMICS! SIMPLE!  

Why is this so important?

Giving a child a love of reading is AWESOME! PLUS it gets children off devices which is increasingly hard! 

Reading sparks their imaginations! Or as an added BONUS you could read it with them. Spending time connecting with your children is super, double, triple AWESOME for them AND you. Share this great adventure together and form a beautiful bond and love of comics with your child. #ParentingWin

Risks and challenges

There are always risks in life but we hope this adventure isn’t too hair raising for you. Craig has just completed the entire comic book, working too many hours to even count. After all, he has to impress his daughter, and she has high standards!

As ME Publishing have self published before, we have a great relationship with our printers and know what to expect, and the exceptional quality of their work.

We have been working through numerous samples from our printers, deciding what the book will be like and we know you are going to LOVE it as much as we do! We really want it to become a collectors item and that is why we have chosen to include luxury features like a cloth spine to make it extra special.

ME Publishing have an amazing set up in place for shipping items worldwide, as they already distribute and process orders for their gratitude journals, so it will go as smoothly as any adventure might go.

If you want to be extra sure you can check out the reviews that ME Publishing receive about their customer service on their Facebook page for their gratitude journals.
