This Spring, Red 5 comics will have a new addition alongside their other well known characters like  Atomic Robo and Bonnie Lass. Bodie Troll is a “cute, furry, little grump” (think Disney’s Stitch with a
“non-family-friendly” rating) from Hagadorn Village where he strives to strike terror and fear into anyone crossing his path. Much to his dismay, he is anything but scary and everyone’s favorite little guy. When he’s not munching on dirty roots and sour milk, he’s running errands for a fairy godmother. From the Jay P. Fosgitt, issue #1 of Bodie Troll is set to hit shelves this April.

Bodie will be introduced to Red 5 Comic’s largest-ever audience as he will share pages with
Atomic Robo in this May’s Free Comic Book Day issue. Retailers will want to have copies of
Bodie Troll #1 on hand for the event.

spring is to pre-order it before February 28 from your comic shop using order code

Preview catalog and set for release on April 17, 2013 for just $2.99.
