Reflecto Girl: Beginnings

First Megan & Flos, now Reflecto Girl – all the brave girls stories are being turned into proper comics!  Here is Reflecto Girl: Beginnings – the first four episodes.  If you’re not familiar with Reflecto Girl, let me fill you in.

Renée Gale is an ordinary girl who becomes extraordinary with the help of an inheritance from her grandmother.  She becomes the latest possessor of the Dounto (pronounced doon-toe), a mystical mirror that has been passed down through the female line of her family since ancient Celtic times.  When the Dounto is held in front of someone doing something horrible to somebody else, the horrible thing they’re doing happens to them.

Armed with the Dounto, Renée is Reflecto Girl and she uses it to protect and defend animals 😀

Of course you can read all the stories for free at Violet’s Vegan Comics if you want to, but if you prefer to turn paper pages, this is the comic book for you! 😉

Megan & Flos: Beginnings

Megan & Flos is now a proper comic from the beginning!  It’s been a while.  Megan actually met Flos in 2012 but then they were only pencil drawings 😉 Now, with the help of Artistry by Stephen Toub, and Comic Life by Plasq, they have been reborn as a proper full colour comic book!

This book contains the first five episodes!  Megan and Flos meet; Megan saves Flos, Flos saves Megan; Megan and Flos track down the polluters; Megan and Flos try to stop the frackers; Megan and Flos go up against the volpars on another planet.  It’s all go!

Of course you can read it all for free at Violet’s Vegan Comics, but if you’re the kind of person who likes to actually turn pages, then this is for you! 😀

Reflecto Girl episodes 5 & 6: Sidekick & Harsh But Fair

Renée Gale became Reflecto Girl when she inherited the Dounto (pronounced doon-toe) from her grandmother.  The Dounto, an ancient Celtic mystical mirror, reflects people’s misdeeds back onto them.  With it Renée defends and protects animals by showing people just what it feels like to be on the receiving end of the kind of treatment they’re dishing out.

In episode 5 Reflecto Girl finds herself in a formal garden and what starts out as a lovely day turns ugly when she discovers the lengths some people will go to for a neatly manicured lawn.  She also learns something she didn’t know about the Dounto and gets herself a sidekick.

In episode 6, Renée, with her new sidekick, goes up against a government man who makes the common mistake of underestimating her and suffers some heart-breaking consequences.

This big, colourful comic book includes not only these exciting stories but also some fascinating information about moles, and calcium, and there’s a couple of fun puzzle pages.

The Reflecto Girl series was first published at Violet’s Vegan Comics and if you like your comics virtual, you can pop over there right now and read all the Reflecto Girl stories for free.  However, if you like to hold the book in your hands, and do the puzzles with a pencil, you can get this one from Amazon for the very reasonable price of £4 😀

Venus Aqueous: Prison Break

It’s 2019 already?!  Well, we hope you’re having a happy new year so far and here’s some more good news: Venus Aqueous Prison Break is now a big, colourful comic book!

For those unfamiliar with Venus, you can catch up with the story so far at Violet’s Vegan Comics, and once you’ve got to know her, you’re bound to want to read episode 5 😀

In this chapter, Venus and friends have heard terrible things about the goings-on at their local public aquarium and they’re going undercover as volunteers to investigate. But what they find out is even more shocking than they knew. Their aquatic friends desperately need the girls’ help and Venus, Jean and Adi won’t let them down.

It’s another exciting adventure from the  popular comic series ‘Venus Aqueous’ about a champion swimmer with the ability to hear and understand marine animals. This full-colour second edition replaces the earlier black and white publication of the same name.  And, as if that wasn’t enough, there’s a crossword about marine animals at the back!

Little Chicken Classic – Luke Walker animal stick up for-er

Remember the old Penguin Classics?  Well here’s a Little Chicken Classic.  The first.  It isn’t quite as pristine as its Penguin counterparts because Luke has got his grubby mits on it and defaced it with stickers and smudges.  Luckily,  they don’t obscure the title 😀

The Little Chicken Classic – Luke Walker animal stick up for-er contains the first sixteen chapters of our beloved outlaw’s adventures, complete with illustrations.  It seemed a good idea to put them all in one volume, making them more portable and therefore easier to keep on hand for public transport delays or long waits in doctors’ waiting rooms or whenever you have a few moments at your disposal.  Getting so much adventure into so few pages was achieved by simply changing the font – this Little Chicken Classic is written in the classic Times New Roman which fills less than half the number of pages taken up by the handwritten font used in the first two books.  So, there’s your behind-the-scenes look at what made this edition possible which might be obvious to some and uninteresting to many, but since I assume you already know who Luke Walker is and what kind of mischief he gets up to, I had to post something different about this edition.

On the other hand, perhaps I’m wrong to assume anything.  Perhaps you’ve never heard of Luke Walker.  Perhaps you don’t know that he’s an eight year old, growing up in a typical meat-eating household, who doesn’t just accept things unquestioningly.  Perhaps you didn’t realise that, despite the fact that he’s never met a veg*n in his life, he decides to become one after discovering what bacon really is, or rather, was.  Perhaps you don’t know that whilst he is perceived by parents and teachers alike to be naughty, rebellious, argumentative and troublesome, he is in actual fact extremely thoughtful, empathetic, wise and brave.  He is outspoken but uses more than just words to stick up for animals in all sorts of different ways.  He is a righteous warrior for the innocent victims who can’t help themselves, or damsons in distress as he calls them.  He’s a modern Robin Hood.

These stories are funny, exciting and touching but if you don’t believe me you can read them for free here.  If you’d like to gift them to a friend or read them to your children at bedtime you can buy the paperback from Lulu 😀

The Princess Who Liked To Be Popular

The Princess Who Liked To Be Popular has a new cover and a new font and some new information pages at the back about how to change the world, that make this colourful, glittery fairy tale even better!

For those who don’t know, let me remind you –

Princess Primrose loves to be loved so she always does her best to please everyone. Her father, the king, is worried that her need for popularity will get her into trouble but when he tries to explain that to her she disregards his advice. Consequently, when she is left in charge of the kingdom while her parents are away, she has to learn the hard way that it’s not always a good idea to give the people what they want.

The Princess Who Liked To Be Popular (which you can read for free at Violet’s Vegan Comics on the Fairy Tales page) is a colourfully illustrated fairy tale with the vegan message of causing no harm, of respecting nature, and of doing the right thing regardless of how unpopular it may make us; an old fashioned story with modern relevance. For reading to or with young children, or for children aged 8 and up to read alone.

The Rebel Gang and the Number Ciphers

The Rebel Gang and the Number Ciphers is finally available in paperback!  Woohoo!!!! 😀

Suspicious ciphertexts discovered by state investigators.  Assumed to be the correspondence of a hostile rebel gang.  Those in charge fear an attempt to overthrow the government.  M is tasked with tracking down the rebels, discovering their plans and bringing them to justice before they destroy civilization 😮

This is the classified document, complete with uncovered ciphertexts and suspect profiles, which details the investigation’s progress.

The Rebel Gang and the Number Ciphers is a funny, intriguing and sometimes badly-spelled code-cracking journey of discovery, illustrated with a mixture of collage and ink drawings.

This story is fiction and any resemblance to real people or events is entirely coincidental 😉

You can get a better look at the book here, and even read the whole story here for free if you like 🙂
