“Zorpbert & Fred” is a comic by Dawn Griffin and features two aliens who have disguised themselves as dogs to live the easy life on Earth. The webcomic at zfcomics.com, has returned to its regular publication schedule after its summer hiatus.
Well, summer’s over and all you kids are back to school. Just like you, “Zorphbert & Fred”, the webcomic featuring two aliens disguised as Earth dogs, is back and you can read the newest adventures here.
Kids work on their own comics as part of the “Your First Comic” workshop held at the Glatfelter Library in Spring Grove
To celebrate the return of Dawn Griffin’s creation, Junior Dispatch is pleased to announce the results of a giveaway we had over the summer.
To be part of the giveaway, you had to attend one of five “Your First Comic” workshops at York County Libraries this summer.
Junior Dispatch editor John Simcoe visited Paul Smith, Dover, Kaltreider-Benfer, Collinsville and Glatfelter libaries in his whirlwind of the county as dozens of kids got an opportunity to flex their creative muscles. The young writer-artists made comics about superheroes, living fruit, animals, space explorers along with dozens of other ideas.
Each participant had their name thrown into the Junior Dispatch hat and now we have the winners:
- Winning the top prize is Delaney, who attended the Dover class. Delaney wins two “Zorphbert & Fred” books, “Prepare to by Analyzed” and “Marriage Runs on Coffee.” Together the two books are a whopping 292 pages.
- Winning the final giveaway copy of the “Zorphbert & Fred Con Exclusive Mini Book” is Ora, who attended the Paul Smith class.
Junior Dispatch will contact the two winners in the coming days.
Finally, Junior Dispatch would like to offer our thanks to Dawn Griffin for supplying the prizes for our giveaway. You can read more about Dawn in our interview of her here.
Teachers: Interested in having John Simcoe come out to your class for a “Your First Comic” session? Contact him at email@example.com. The class takes 1.5 hours and attendees will learn to create their own comic book. The session consists of a mix of writing, craft-making and drawing.
