So that giant ogre has been secretly following Charles and Margo this whole time! How did Margo know? There must have been some clues! Can you find that sneaky ogre mom? Let’s have a contest!
If you’ve got sharp eyes, YOU can spot Gertrude the ogre, shadowing Margo and Charles all throughout their hunt for the missing baby ogre (between pages
74 78 and 102)! Tell me at least 5 panels that you’ve spotted her lurking (page number and panel number) and I’ll enter you in the contest to win an original Margo Maloo drawing. There are ten total panels, but some of them are pretty hard to spot! Hint: remember that ogres have glowing amber eyes and horns!
If you spot every single appearance, I’ll put your name in twice. ;-)
As a civic-minded fella, I thought I might make up a list of comics (print and online) that I could recommend to folks that like Margo Maloo! Meaning… I don’t know! Generally kid-friendly, if not made specifically for kids? The real world colliding with a supernatural/fantastic element? Just a similar feel?
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
The Secret Science Alliance by Eleanor Davis ;-)
Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi
Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki
Hilda and the Midnight Giant by Luke Pearson
The Unsinkable Walker Bean by Aaron Renier
Little Vampire by Joann Sfar
Mermin by Joey Weiser
Got any recs? Hit me in a comment!
Well, here is a neat thing! Some Margo Maloo fan art that is actually a little animated sequence, featuring Margo and Sal, the Mailgoblin! Thanks to Billy Mpetha! Go check out his stuff!
I’m out of town this week, at my Grandmother-in-law’s 85th birthday party! I was hoping to get some comics done on the road, but you know how it goes. Hopefully I’ll have at least one page this week, but it might end up getting pushed till next week.
