Super Grammar: July 2012

Thank you, Comic-Con!

This was a great year for Super Grammar at Comic-Con. And with our book being released on September 1st, we were really super excited to be there to share the news. The great thing, though, is that once people started learning about our book and how it uses superheroes and supervillains to teach the basics of grammar, they also wanted to help us get the word out—like these two MythBusters!

Holy interjections, did it feel great when MythBusters Tory Belleci and Kari Byron stopped by to show their support for Super Grammar. Tory even tweeted about us on his twitter feed.

Comic-Con also had other surprises in store for us, like another tweet about Super Grammar by the amazingly talented Industrial Light and Magic Art Dept. These super artists can draw and design some truly amazing stuff, so to have them give us a nod was really an honor. Thanks a lot, you guys!

With all this extra press happening, we were really glad that we had our promo posters and bookmarks printed up and ready for Comic-Con. We even had some Super Grammar logo t-shirts printed up. Here's a picture of Rhode and me at the Super Grammar booth wearing our t-shirts.
Well, actually, Rhode couldn't wear his t-shirt because he was dressed in costume to promote his very wonderful Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) inspired book called Skeletown (check out Skeletown here!). But he always kept his t-shirt nearby.
Costumes, posters, and twitters aside, though, the very best thing about going to Comic-Con is always the same for us—it's getting to meet you!

To all of you who have been following our blog and/or facebook page and took the time to stop by our booth just to meet us and say "Hi," (you know who you are) thank you so very much. We can't tell you how much we appreciate you and all the support that you give us. And to all of you whom we met for the first time at this year's Comic-Con and have only just learned about this blog and our book, welcome to Super Grammar!

It's time for Comic-Con!

About a year ago, Super Grammar made its official public debut at the San Diego Comic-Con, and that's when we let everybody know that we were working on a Super Grammar book. But this year, we're coming back to say, "We finished it!"

To help us get the word out, we've printed up some new Super Grammar promos, like these two posters. The one on the left shows the actual cover to our book, along with its release date and where you can pre-order a copy. And the one on the right is a promo for our blog site.
Also, since we won't have an actual display copy of our book available to show (although we did try), we still wanted to be able to give the Comic-Con goers a preview of all our Super Grammar characters, so we printed up a couple Super Grammar Characters preview booklets that we'll be keeping on hand at our booth (which by the way is booth 1329) so that we can share the look of our Super Grammar superheroes and supervillains.

Here's a peek at the how the preview booklets came out. (And it's also a sneak peek at some new Super Grammar character designs!)
We're really excited to be going back to Comic-con this year, and we're super excited to share the news about our book being released. If you're also going to the Comic-con, please stop in on us at BOOTH 1329 and say hello. We hope to see you there!
