Manty Hat

Hey Guys!

Be sure to come visit the Keno's Lair booth at this year's San Diego Comic Con in Small Press, table O13!

Jill Johnson is a wonderfully creative and talented co-worker of mine at EA; she is highly experienced at making custom adorable plushies and she's made some for many of my co-workers there.

And she made me my very own Manty hat--YEEEE!! I was so excited to see how awesome it turned out. I'm impressed at how close it came to my concepts (see below)! THANK YOU JILL!! YOU ROCK!

Manty is a character in the comic that you will be seeing more of in the next issue. Because Kayli is obsessed with riding a flying manta, Manty reluctantly becomes Kayli's pet of sorts... We've had many plans for him to act as comic relief in the webstrip but decided to give him a more significant role in the main comic.

Check out more on Manty here at our Official Islands in the Sky Blog! And now on to some photos!

His 3 tails are fully poseable and bendy!

D'awwww, how can you be mad at this face?
