Howtoons Reignition Vol. 1 hits all stores today!

We are very proud to announce that our Howtoons [Re]ignition series has been collected into a trade and is now available wherever books are sold!!!

This is Howtoons longest adventure yet, spanning over 150 pages. Featuring an all-star team Fred Van Lente, Tom Fowler, Jordie Bellaire, and Rus Wooton!

Tuck and Celine’s parents put their family in suspended animation to ride out the ecological apocalypse but when the kids wake up to find Mom & Dad are gone, they have to make their way across a brave and terrifying new world to find their parents…using only their Howtoons projects to survive! Some of the projects include, marshmallow shooter, toilet paper roll flashlight, windmill, potato batteries, Pringles can generator, stomp rocket, and more!

This book aims to help make kids, and parents more energy literate through hands on building, adventure, and fun! People don’t think about energy very often. Not many of us would know how our electricity was generated, nor whether there is more useful energy in a peanut or a drop of oil. We hear about climate change, but few of us join the dots between the things we do daily in terms of coal, solar, and gasoline, or how that might effect the world around us. We just aren’t very energy literate, in spite of how important that is.

Howtoons [Re]Ignition is available at your local comic book store, book stores, and through Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

Here is a preview of the book.
