Cartoonist Debbie Ohi interviews writer Liam O’Donnell for BlogTO. O’Donnell has two new educational graphic novels for kids coming out, illustrated by Michael Dead. He is also the writer behind the Max Finder Mystery gn, illustrated by Micahel Cho. He doesn’t mention either cartoonist in his interview, though:
“I actually have two new graphic novels out this fall. Wild Ride from Orca Publishers is the first in a new series, Graphic Guide Adventures. It’s a wilderness survival adventure for 8-14 year olds, about three kids who get trapped in the woods of northern BC. In addition to the story, real life, step-by-step wilderness survival tips are blended into the action, so kids can learn how to build a shelter from tree branches, how to cross a river safely, set a broken limb and lots more fun stuff. It comes out in October. The next in the series is Ramp Rats, which is about skateboarding and is packed with instructions on how to land skating tricks. It comes out in 2008.
Coming out in September is Max Finder Mystery Collected Casebook Vol. 3, the third installment in my you-solve-it mystery comic, Max Finder Mystery, which ran in OWL Magazine for four years.”
