BURRILLVILLE – This week’s Itty Bitty Super Dupers Halloween safety coloring cartoon reminds kids about a variety of safety hazards and dangers to watch out for on Sunday, Oct. 31.
Perfect timing: It’s also the Itty Bitty Super Dupers’ birthday today. They soared onto the comic book scene on Halloween night with their very popular Itty Bitty Super Dupers vs. Scary Monsters Coloromic Book, receiving rave reviews by comic book professionals and critics nationwide. The official comic book publication at the time was called Comics Buyers Guide, and was distributed across America to thousands of comic book shops and related book stores and gift shops.
The IBSD Coloromic Book wasn’t featured in the Top 10 Independent Comics listed in that magazine in their November issue after its release date on October 31. It was listed in the Top 10 Mainstream Publishers section and due to its popularity and rapid sales was listed 2nd place, only being topped by a Superman comic book released nationwide in the same month. Spider-Man listed just behind the Itty Bitty Super Dupers taking the 3rd spot. Critics loved the Coloromic format, artwork and storyline, comparing the cartoon characters and hilarious story to that of Warner Bros. cartoon characters and humorous content for kids. Kids, teens and adults all laughed out loud when reading the story, and one comic book critic wrote; “Itty Bitty Super Dupers vs. Scary Monsters artwork is fantastic for coloring, the story can be read again, and again, and the character dialogue puts the word ‘Fun’ back in funny.”
