Dark Horse Comics is bringing the New York Times best-selling The Stuff of Legend and Finding Nemo: Losing Dory creative team of Mike Raicht and Brian Smith’s forthcoming all-ages graphic novel Tree Mail to print this November.
“This book has been something Brian and I have been wanting to work on together for years,” says Mike Raicht. “If you’ve ever been an underdog, or had an impossible dream that was just too big for the world around you to contain, then Rudy the Tree Frog is the story for you.”
The story revolves around Rudy, a determined, optimistic frog, who hopes to overcome the odds and land his dream job delivering mail to the other animals on Popomoko Island.Rudy will always hop forward, no matter what obstacle seems to be in the way of his dreams. There will be plenty of obstacles, speed bumps, challenges, and detours as Rudy works to become a member in the island’s Royal Air Delivery Corps.
“I think he can inspire people young, old, and in between to chase their dreams and to truly become who they were meant to be, no matter what they’ve been told they’re ‘supposed’ to be,” says Brian Smith. “I think that is what Rudy and his adventures are all about. Becoming more than those around us, and maybe even we ourselves, believe is possible.”
Tree Mail will hit stores on November 2nd. Pre-Order your copy today.
