Benny's New Enterprise

Benny has written three glorious and exotic comic books and has plans to sell them at the Colonial Place Community Yard Sale tomorrow. These each represent the first installment in three separate series he has plotted out. Their titles are:

Jefferson in the Missing Clothes
Potato Biscuits and the Big Bad Sausage
Superdog in Cinderpoodle

He figured out all the finances involved in making five copies of each book at Kinko's, decided to sell them at 20% off at his sale, and figured out what profit he expects to make. He made a sign, he's signing collector cells, and he's very very excited. I'm about to go stuff him into bed, but here are a few links:

He created a blog for his comic books. He named his press "Out of the Box Readers" because he wrote his first comic while hanging out at our co-op, Homeschool Out of the Box.
He created a web site for his comic books.

Here is the sign:

Here are the children holding up some of the products:

If you're reading this blog and you're local to Norfolk, will be in the neighborhood of Colonial Place tomorrow morning, and want to spend $2 supporting Benny's new publishing empire, shoot me an email to jackets at rpsd dot com, and I'll let you know the specifics of where he'll be set up.

And of course I'll blog about it later. :)

    Ok, I want one. How should I get the money (and the money for postage) to you?

    The comic book site is looking good. Benny! :)

    I want one of each.

  3. I admire his sense of enterprise! And here I've been "thinking about" making books of my comics for a year but I haven't done it. Let me know if Benny ever wants to start his own publishing company. I'll send him my comics. ;o)
