It’s no secret that a well balanced all-ages comic can be an amazing piece of work….and I’ve read (and reviewed) my fair share of them and this new addition looks to have the potential to match any of those I’ve read before.
Now in it’s last two weeks of it’s Kickstarter and with the finish line in sight here’s hoping we can make it happen, especially when you read through their press release info below:
“Talbot Toluca packs panels, hidden-object games and puzzles, in this inter-dimensional breakthrough comic for all ages.
Las Vegas, NV May 12,2014 – Award-winning children’s picture book author and illustrator Kenneth Lamug hopes to reignite the all-ages genre with the first of an interactive series.
The Tall Tales of Talbot Toluca – The Quest For the Ore Crystals combines the high impact visuals of comics while engaging the reader with Where’s Waldo-like hidden object games, mazes and puzzles.
After discovering a secret lab right under their school, Talbot and his friends must now take the responsibility of protecting the lab at all costs. Unfortunately, the evil scientist Dr. Kadoom makes a comeback from another dimension with the aim of total world destruction.
Creator Lamug had this to say:
“I want readers to be part of the adventure and solve problems alongside the characters, this is a story, yet it’s also a game about problem-solving and exploration. It’s all about immersing in the quest. This book is only a small piece of the puzzle to the entire Talbot Tales.”
Each hidden-object center spread can take up to a month to draw and color, and that’s not including the puzzles and story panels. Lamug plans up to seven spreads with six already completed. He believes this unique format separates his Talbot series from the rest.
His previous book, A Box Story, garnered four awards in its first year, an unexpected accomplishment for a first title. Lamug hopes that adults and kids alike will respond in a positive way to this new book and seek out comics as a new medium for interactive content.”
The Kickstarter runs through until the 10th June 2014 and is well worth a look, check it out here.
