Lion Forge team up with The Magic House in St. Louis to publish “Neener Neener Neener!”

It’s a familiar taunt for those of us who have been children (and spoiler: we have all been children): neener neener neener!  You’re playing tag, let’s say, and you’re it.  You almost catch your quarry, but lo!  You trip over a fallen tree branch, or fumble over untied shoe laces.  This gives your target time to run to the top of the playground, where they mockingly chant those three words.

Then you manage to tag someone else and now you’re the one who’s taunting.  It’s a sweet cycle.

In a joint effort with The Magic House in St. Louis, Lion Forge have announced a brand new graphic novel titled-- you guessed it-- Neener Neener Neener!  It’s the story of a pair of siblings and their (alien) friend as they encounter a group of mischievous beings called the Neeners.  Given that The Magic House is a children’s museum, this is a great effort to get kids interested in both learning and reading.  Comics are pretty great, guys.

ALIENS VISIT THE LEGENDARY ST. LOUIS MAGIC HOUSE IN NEW GRAPHIC NOVEL

 ST LOUIS– Lion Forge Labs, creative agency and sister company of Lion Forge Comics, has partnered with The Magic House in St. Louis for Neener Neener Neener!

This adorable new comic, written by Paul Manchester with art by Lorenzo Lizana, tells the extraordinary tale of siblings Wisteria and Wilby Wiggins and their new alien friend. The three problem-solvers must try to stop some cute and mischievous visitors from another planet, known as the Neeners, from taking over The Magic House and causing complete chaos. The Wiggins siblings help save the Neeners using the scientific process, based on lessons they learned at the museum.

“Lion Forge Labs has created an endearing adventure book for young readers that helps bring The Magic House to life through the pages of the story. We are thrilled to be the setting for the out-of-this-world adventure,” said Beth Fitzgerald, President of The Magic House.

“You can’t imagine the fun we had attempting to take all of the adventures from our childhood visits to The Magic House and reimagining it with Wisteria, Wilby, and the Neeners,” says Carl Reed, Chief Creative Officer for Lion Forge. “I can’t wait to share these stories with my kids and all of the visitors, allowing them to take a little piece of The Magic House home with them.”

Neener Neener Neener! is a fun-filled read for parents and children alike. It’s the perfect companion to a visit to the beloved St. Louis institution where it will be exclusively available for sale starting October 19 for $9.99!
