Creepy Crawly Book Trailer

I’m excited to announce the release of a new book trailer video for Joey Fly, Private Eye: Creepy Crawly Crime! I worked on this with Neil Numberman, illustrator of Joey Fly, along with some incredible work from a few of his awesome animator pals. The result is a blast. Take a peek:

Hey, teachers and librarians…have the whole class come view the trailer during computer lab time. It’ll introduce your kids to this bugtastic graphic novel and send ‘em running for the library shelves. It’s sure to get some book buzz going and get them ready for Joey Fly, Private Eye #2 which debuts this fall. More on that soon!
