Trade Tuesday: Annoying Orange! ~ What'cha Reading?

Trade Tuesday: Annoying Orange!


Hey, did you head out to the comic book store yet? No? Good. C’mere.

If you have kids, you probably know Annoying Orange. I had the vaguest inkling, but once I asked my 9 year-old for more info, I received an extensive dossier that Nick Fury would be proud of. I’ll spare you the details and break it down: he’s a fruit. He’s snarky. He has fruit friends. There are YouTube videos, a show on Cartoon Network, and graphic novels from Papercutz. He’s on Twitter and Facebook. In short, Annoying Orange is a media mogul, folks. Behold your new master.


Orange You Glad You’re Not Me? is the latest Annoying Orange graphic novel from Papercutz, out today. There are seven short adventures starring Orange and his friends, where they encounter such dilemmas as the perils of show business and time travel.  There are bios on the Annoying Orange gang, for those kids compiling their own dossiers. The writing is kid-friendly and the humor is downright goofy; the art is very kid-friendly and cartoony.

At $6.99, the price is right for a treat to get your kids through the spring fever that’s setting in, these last few weeks of school. Why not check it out, and be in on the trend?
