Turn your room into a pinhole camera with our latest Howtoon, Camera Obscura! We are excited to announce our new book Howtoons (Re)Ignition published through Image Comics due out Summer 2014. For this book we have assembled an all star creative team; writer Fred Van Lente, artist Tom Fowler, colorist Jordie Bellaire, letterer Rus Wooton. Writer, Fred Van Lente, describes (Re)Ignition “Tuck and Celine’s parents anticipate a coming ecological apocalypse and put their family to sleep deep underground with the hopes of riding it out. At some unspecified point in the future they wake up when their bunker runs out of power — and their parents have mysteriously disappeared. So these two kids have to embark on a quest through the brave and dangerous new world they find to be reunited with their mom and dad — and they have to use the gadgeteering and project-making skills to survive and battle the many strange things and people they encounter.”
