    I’m sure this is a great book but writing “a graphic adventure novel for kids set in Egypt in the 1930s” seems like a pretty specific audience.

    I grew up reading comics usaully it was Bugs, Daffy, Donald, Mickey, Little Lulu and that sort. Mad Magazine I got by subscription, I never really cared about Marvel or the “serious” stories. I graduated from those straight into Zap and all the great maddness of the underground comics. I loved comics then and still do. People of lesser taste and education have suggested my comics habit represents immaturity. I pity them but find most of that ilk cannot be helped.  Ahh well, those of us who know are grateful for the information you provide here. Thanks for the the grins and great reading.

    Speaking as a member of the assumed target audience, that is I am 13, I don’t see how this would be effective. The hoped for achievement is to spread comics and therefore boost reading, but with the generation this would apply to, the plan would fall flat. The topic appeals to a narrow audience and even given that, the audience which would benefit from this project are limited further by practical semantics. Take a child, say 10 or even 8, if they’re interested in Egypt they would read this but it is safe to assume that they already read and nurse a curiosity, proving the project rather ineffectual. On the other side of the spectrum, a person who is not already interested and so be the target audience would most likely not be interested in the topic. It’s a good effort but I just fail to see it working with desired effects.
