In November, Dark Horse Comics will release Tree Mail, a tale of the most optimistic frog you’ve ever met.
Rudy—a determined, optimistic frog—hopes to overcome the odds and land his dream job delivering mail to the other animals on Popomoko Island! Mike Raicht and Brian Smith deliver a full-color, all-ages romp that shows that the hopeful Rudy always hops forward, no matter what obstacle seems to be in the way of his dreams. And there are plenty of speed bumps, challenges, and detours on the way to becoming a full-time member in the island’s Royal Air Delivery Corps!
Interestingly, this story is by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith, the same creative team of Finding Nemo: Losing Dory.
“I think he can inspire people young, old, and in between to chase their dreams and to truly become who they were meant to be, no matter what they’ve been told they’re ‘supposed’ to be,” said Brian Smith in a press release. “I think that is what Rudy and his adventures are all about. Becoming more than those around us, and maybe even we ourselves, believe is possible.”
All ages, uplifting tales? Sign me up! Preorders are going on now, with the release date scheduled for November 2nd.
