Looking for a fine family read? Dark Horse will be taking care of you this coming cold season, as Mike Raicht and Brian Smith’s graphic novel, Tree Man will land on stands this coming November. We’re juiced, and you should be, too!
Dig on some more info from the official press release:
From the creative team behind Finding Nemo: Losing Dory comes Tree Mail and the world of Rudy.
“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.”
Rudy—a determined, optimistic frog—hopes to overcome the odds and land his dream job delivering mail to the other animals on Popomoko Island! Mike Raicht and Brian Smith deliver a full-color, all-ages romp that shows that the hopeful Rudy always hops forward, no matter what obstacle seems to be in the way of his dreams. And there are plenty of speed bumps, challenges, and detours on the way to becoming a full-time 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.”
The acclaimed creative team delivers a full, standalone adventure for all fans!
Tree Mail arrives on November 2. Preorder your copy today at your local comic book store or favorite retailer.
