Media Release -- Stan Lee's Kids Universe (SLKU) has announced the newest title to be published from the children's imprint which was co-founded between Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment and 1821 Media. Dex T-Rex, The Mischievous Little Dinosaur, by author/artist Katya Bowser will be unveiled at Comic-Con International: San Diego (July 23 – 27, 2014). In the tradition of the Stan Lee inspired characters that came before him, protagonist Dex T-Rex helps a new generation of children and their parents imagine, learn, and bond while they enjoy following their endearing title character throughout the pages of his journey.
In Dex T-Rex: The Mischievous Little Dinosaur, Katya Bowser gives us a loveable young dinosaur who just wants to have fun, but plays too rough, until he learns an important lesson about playing nice. This latest children's title joins the growing SLKU book roster, which currently includes Monsters vs. Kittens, Once Upon A Time There Was A Pig, and Reggie The Veggie. With the goal of promoting reading and learning to the 10 and under crowd, the SLKU label features a mix of picture books, graphic novels, mobile games, and interactive books. Each offering reflects Lee's signature sense of imaginative storytelling with heroic characters that aim to teach, entertain and enthrall a new generation of readers and their parents.
"I am excited to introduce young readers to Dex T-Rex, the latest lovable and relatable hero in our Kids Universe," said Stan Lee, Founder/Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of POW! Entertainment. "My hope is that parents will appreciate the messages in the book while children will be so drawn to the colorful pages and fun storyline that they won't even realize that they are learning and building their imaginations as they follow along with Dex on his adventures."
Stan Lee and representatives from SLKU will appear at Comic-Con International: San Diego (July 24 – 27, 2014) to debut Dex T-Rex and showcase other titles from the SLKU book imprint. More details to be announced in early July.
