Publisher ComixTribe recently launched a Kickstarter for the latest addition to their children’s book line – Joe Mulvey’s Mummy’s Always Right.
Mummy’s Always Right is a fully illustrated hardcover board book about a mischievous monster called Gaws whose Mummy teaches him some valuable lessons about life, and about how to stay safe and behave while still having fun with his friends.
Speaking about the title, Joe said “I made this book for my two little monsters. But I think there are a whole lot of other families who will enjoy it, too.”
The Kickstarter was launched just a few days ago, and has already exceeded its goal with 26 days left to go. There are lots of fantastic goodies available for backers, including digital and physical copies of the book, prints, sketches and full-on commissions from Mulvey, who has previously worked on the likes of Scam and the John Lees-written Oxymoron: The Loveliest Nightmare.
Having been given an advance look at the book, we can vouch for its quality, with Mulvey’s typically stellar artwork delivering the valuable lessons (brush your teeth, be careful when you’re out, don’t talk to strangers, etc) in a fun, accessible way. If you’re a parent, this is going to be a fantastic book to read to your children, sharing in the monstrous illustrations and the bright, colourful exploits of Gaws and his friends “The Boo Crew”.
“We stumbled upon a surprise hit a few years back, with the C is for Cthulhu line of books,” said ComixTribe publisher Tyler James on the launch of the Kickstarter. “Now, we’re trying to see if lightning can strike twice with Muley and Mummy.”
Well, based on the early feedback, it seems like that lightning has most definitely struck again, and with the promise that Mummy’s Always Right will be the first in a planned series of horror-themed children’s books by Joe and ComixTribe, we definitely can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
