Hazardous Monday: Pigeon Edition

I don't have a comic for you this week. April has been a very busy month. I've spoken at TWENTY schools--in Kansas, Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, and my own state of Utah. 

While in DC, I had one unscheduled afternoon. So I made it my mission to get a photo of this guy:


This is Cher Ami, a one-legged stuffed pigeon who can be found in the WWI cabinet in the Museum of American History at the Smithsonian.

I guess now is as good as place as any to reveal it, Hazardous Tales #4 is about World War One.

This pigeon is a bonafide WWI hero. He helped save a group of American soldiers known as the Lost Battalion. How? Well, you'll have to look him up. I don't want to spoil his adventure here. Will Cher Ami be appearing in his own comic soon? Chances are pretty good.

WWI book is still a ways off--the third book (Donner Party) will be out this summer, WWI after that. Most likely next spring.

I love WWI. I mean, it was obviously terrible, but so interesting. Very excited for this one.

Lipstick sales always go up during times of war...maybe there's a Revlon endorsement in the wings.
It's perfect for your target audience too.
