Creator/writer Shawn Pryor (FORCE: THE WRIGHT TIME, KENTUCKY KAIJU) has a very special message below about his upcoming graphic novel out next week!
Dallas Cash and Inez Carrie aren’t your run-of-the-mill everyday kids. They’re best friends, and they solve mysteries of all sizes, anywhere and anytime!
Dallas is a tenacious techie who believes in the supernatural, whereas Inez bases her crime-solving skills in realism, and is also captain of the wrestling team.
This middle-readers series moves forward with the release of CASH & CARRIE – BOOK TWO: SUMMER SLEUTHS. I’ve always enjoyed the Hardy Boys & Nancy Drew novels, television series such as The X-Files, and animated series such as Scooby-Doo, Gravity Falls, and Fillmore. I wanted to take my love for all of those things and give a new generation of comic readers fun, exciting, and inclusive mystery-filled stories that anyone can enjoy.
But, I did not create CASH & CARRIE on my own. With co-creator Giulie Speziani and the talented Penny Candy Studios, we made a pilot comic in 2015 that turned into a successful Kickstarter campaign. The following year, we created a full-fledged graphic novel (CASH & CARRIE: BOOK ONE – SLEUTH 101). And now, CASH & CARRIE are finally back with all-new stories.
In BOOK TWO, schools out for the summer, and that means it’s time to retreat to a cabin in the woods where it’s always safe, and nothing wrong ever happens. Maybe.
It’s all fun and games at Summer Camp Sobol until strange things start happening. Campers end up missing, Bigfoot might exist, and what’s really in the cafeteria coleslaw?
With no Wi-Fi and the mosquito repellent not cutting it, our detective duo will have to stick together to solve these mysteries on their own. Will Cash & Carrie survive this spooky summer camp of supreme superstition? And who will win the Camp Sobol Summer Games? You’ll have to read Book Two to find out!
Additional stories include C+C in a culinary whodunit, and we also get a glimpse into the C+C universe and find out what the other kids in the neighborhood did over the summer, too! And there’s also a pinup gallery!
Book Two also features terrific artwork by up and coming talents such as Marcus Kwame Anderson, Chris Ludden & Ginger Dee, Tressina Bowling, and many others, with a cover by Caroline Frumento.
CASH & CARRIE is a project that is close to my heart, and I am thankful to everyone that has supported this graphic novel series so far. I will continue to get this book in the hands of more readers, no matter what it takes.
BOOK ONE and TWO are available wherever books are sold, so I hope you get a copy for your kids or a kid at heart.
