Hi Karen! I heard your interview on Litopia, it was great. Classic Comics is a really exciting project and it sounds like you are producing a brilliant product! I'll be looking out for them in bookshops :)

Ooops. I was thinking my profile had a different photo. I will try to upload the other one.
This photo is Marco, an explorer cat. If you like this one, you'll love the two together.
