Columbina joins Pinocchio and friends against the undead

Pinocchio Vampire Slayer

Pinocchio Vampire Slayer

Van Jensen, who shared his Shelf Porn with us yesterday, shares another teaser image for his upcoming book with Dusty Higgins, Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer and the Great Puppet Theater. This image introduces Columbina to the team.

He also mentioned that the pre-order page is up on Amazon. And you can find out more about the book in San Diego this year, where Van and Dusty are special guests.

Here’s some additional info on the book:

Pinocchio’s back… but who are his friends!?! In the sequel to the 2009 graphic novel Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer by Dusty Higgins and Van Jensen, the titular puppet has to share the undead-killing stage. The stakes are raised in Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer and the Great Puppet Theater (SLG Publishing) as Pinocchio unravels the mystery of the vampire menace and his own shadowy background. The sequel will hit shelves in October.

Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer was named one of the Ten Great Graphic Novels for Teens in 2010 by YALSA. Follow Pinocchio on Twitter: @p_vampireslayer



Honestly, nothing against Van, his work or awesome shelves, but I don’t really like these shadow style teasers. They use them a lot these days, it feels like, and it just seems like a really lame promo system – one pin up spread of all the characters, but revealed one at a time? just… I don’t know, too manufactured a way to try and build buzz for my tastes.

No offense taken, Ian. Honestly, we were trying to be funny by playing off that trend (which, I agree, is completely silly). But I guess the joke didn’t really come across, which is totally our fault.

Well, you get major points for responding directly to criticism :D
