Book Review & Giveaway: Frankie’s Scared of Everything

Frankie cover

Building Block Press sent me a copy of the book Frankie’s Scared of Everything for free to read and review. They are also providing the giveaway prize. Opinions are my own.

Frankie’s Scared of Everything is a beautifully illustrated book about a young boy who’s overactive imagination is making it hard for him to sleep. The book was written and illustrated by Matthew Franklin who is a tattoo artist, painter, graphic designer, and musician. After receiving degrees in painting and photography from Miami University he immediately became a staple in the art scene in Columbus, Ohio where he currently resides. The story is one we have heard before in that a child cannot go to sleep because their imagination comes up with scary monsters that keep them up at night. What I found nice and refreshing is that the mom tells Frankie that everything that he thinks is a monster was once an idea in someone’s imagination. She also tells him that he has the power to determine whether or not the things in his own imagination will be scary or not. He can turn things around with his imagination.

The other day at the New York Comic Con there was a special She-Ra panel and during the panel the new looks for the characters were revealed. They also revealed a new teaser trailer and the date of the next season. I am happy to hear that the season will be 13 episodes and so not a tiny 6 or 7 episode season. I can’t stand when they do that. thirteen is a good amount of episodes. Fans there even got to watch the first episode of the season and then were treated to a panel with executive producer Noelle Stevenson, Aimee Carrero (Adora/She-Ra), A.J. Michalka (Catra), Karen Fukuhara (Glimmer), and Lauren Ash (Scorpia) moderated by TV Guide Features Editor Krutika Mallikarjuna.

She-Ra Poster

The she-Ra themed poster for the season features a whole new look for Glimmer who has become the new queen of Bright Moon and leader of the Rebellion.

The Horde Poster

The Horde poster features Catra as the co-leader of The Horde. She is also sporting a new look.

Season 4 begins with the respective rises of Queen Glimmer as leader of the Rebellion and Catra as co-leader of the Horde. As the Horde makes advances on the Rebellion under the looming threat of Horde Prime’s arrival, the Princess Alliance makes heroic strides but begins to disagree on the best way to defend Etheria. Ultimately, a shocking discovery about Etheria itself causes Adora to reconsider everything she thought she knew.

In a season where relationships and power dynamics are in constant flux, the cast gave a sneak peek inside other pieces of the season including new character designs for Glimmer and Catra, Lauren Ash shared a clip from an episode focused on Scorpia, and Stevenson teased that there’s a special episode called “Boys Night Out” that includes a couple musical numbers.

New York Comic Con fans surprised with new season 4 teaser trailer and posters.
