Sesame Street and Ape Comics in USA Today

Quick mention of my comic series included:

The comic-book publisher is teaming with the Sesame Workshop to bring longtime TV stars Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, Grover, Elmo and all the gang to comics for the first time in Sesame Street’s 43-year history.

Ape CEO David Hedgecock says he’s been working with Sesame Workshop for more than a year and a half to close a deal, which was longer than normal in negotiating licenses. (The company also publishes Richie Rich,Strawberry Shortcake and Casper the Friendly Ghost comics, among others.)

The artist who has been working on Strawberry Shortcake – Amy Mebberson – just announced that she and James Silvani will be working on this one too.

Author of Strawberry Shortcake: Return of the Purple Pie Man, Disney’s Frozen Comic Collection, Transformers: Robots in Disguise Animated and Littlest Pet Shop: Open for Business. She’s written for IDW Publishing, Hasbro, Lion Forge, American Greetings and Scholastic, and her work has been discussed in Comics Beat and The Washington Post. Subscribe to the newsletter

Sesame Street comic

Sesame Street comic!! – coming ROUGHLY in December from APE comics! James Silvani and I will be two of the artists working on this.

This is my original version of this cover. I had to end up moving Elmo back into Big Bird’s arms because it was considered dangerous to show Elmo hanging off a lamp post. Spoilsports ;p
