SpongeBob Comics artist Gregg Schigiel will be bringing his craft to Image Comics for a brand new middle-grade series, Pix.
Schigiel is known for his wacky stories and introduced Mermaid Girl to SpongeBob’s Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy pantheon. He has a knack for humor and quick and aims to bring it to Pix.
Pix aims to enchant kids of all ages with a teen superhero who will fight her way into readers’ hearts.
“Pix brings together a lot of things I love—superheroes, fairy tales and mythology, talking animals, fun and funny banter—to make something awesome for kids,” said Schigiel. “I’m biased, but I’d have dug it when I was ten or 11 years old.”
Pix is a superhero, but she also believes herself to be a fairy and a princess! In Pix, Vol. 1 she will have to face attacking electronics, secret crushes, a magic 8-ball monster, cell service issues, a dragon war, a bad date, worried moms, a furtive frog, and a malevolent monkey, all jockeying for her attention.
Pix, Vol. 1 hits comic book shelves on Wednesday, February 22nd!
