At last, a bit of time to update our friends and fans before we start our BUSIEST month yet! Wump Mucket Puppets will be performing 6 shows during the month of June 2012, and we couldn’t be happier. Well Coleman is a little cranky, and has asked for a second air conditioner for his trailer, maybe next year “furry guy”.
First a little recap of our May shows! Free Comic Book Day at Maverick’s Comics in Finneytown was a BLAST! Thanks to all our super-fans who came to the show to hear Coleman “sing” the Batman theme song. WHAT! You missed this historic performance? Fear not good citizens, we have been asked to return for Free Comic Book Day 2013! So mark your calendar right now for Saturday May 4th 2013! Ka-Pow!
Speaking of comics, we are nearly out of the first printing of issue number 1 of our very own mini-comic. If you would like a copy for your comic collection, send us a message from our contact page. We’ll let you know how to get a FREE copy. The comic has been so well received by our fans, issue 2 is in the works. It tells the soon to be legendary tale of how a certain Sea Serpent and a Sasquatch first met!
While we are on the subject of art, Wump Mucket Puppets very first fan (really gang she’s been here since the start!) Eleanor Burke (age 7 1/2) has created the concept for our special Summerfair Cincinnati coloring page. She has been watching her daddy draw his puppets and came up with this very cool (and colored!) piece of artwork!
Come see our show at Summerfair Cincinnati on Sunday June 3rd at 12 noon for a coloring page version of this original piece that is now part of the Wump Mucket Puppets art archives.
Our May performance at Julian’s Deli in Loveland was lots of fun and we had a ball meeting new friends and fans. We hope that you’ll come see us there on July 15th at 2 PM. Performing in the city of the legendary Loveland Frog has inspired the “puppet construction department” to begin sketching ideas for a new puppet character to join our little troupe. What would YOU name a strange frog-like creature? Ribit!
Finally, work on the video starring G’Wazzl for our artist pal Andy Finkle is making progress! We think that you will really get a chuckle out of this one and we’ll upload it as soon as it’s finished.
We hope to see you in June!
