New news rom a recent press release by IDW Entertainment, worth a look:
IDW Publishing and Yoe Books are proud to announce Clyde, the all-new original graphic novel written and illustrated by Jim Benton, author of the New York Times-bestselling series Dear Dumb Diary.
The hilarious and heartwarming story of a mischievous bear who believes that happiness can be found over on the rough side of town, Clyde reaffirms that there’s still room for family, friendship, and altruism in even the most rebellious among us.
“We all have sketchy things in our past. It’s a riot to write about a character whose sketchy past is his present!” says Jim Benton.
When Clyde the Bear decides to ditch his safe and peaceful life in Cubville and head off for the mean streets of Grizzly City, he learns – with the help of a reformed juvenile delinquent butterfly – that the Bad Life isn’t always so great, and there’s something to be said for helping your friends and family (even though that really does kind of stink a little).
Jim Benton’s Clyde is now available for pre-order via online booksellers and comic book specialty retailers, and slated for release in February.
