September 10, 2013

A Sketchbook disguised as vintage Coloring Book

New York, N.Y. (September 9, 2013) –Captain Action Enterprises announces another New York Comic Con exclusive: The Captain Action Convention Sketchbook / Coloring Book. Building upon the fan enthusiasm for convention sketchbooks, this 44 page book will feature “Action Artwork” by an impressive collection of comic artists, Including John Byrne, Joe Jusko, Ron Frenz, Ruben Procopio, Steven E. Gordon and Art Thibert.

With a nod to the retro past that the Captain Action so often embraces, this limited edition is designed to evoke the look and feel of a classic 1960’s Coloring Book.

“Captain Action, Dr. Evil and Lady Action are long overdue to star in their own coloring book,” said Ed Catto, a founding partner of Captain Action Enterprises. “From the painted cover to the black-and-white interior images to the corny captions – Its all designed to make the reader feel as if he’s stumbled across a lost coloring book in a forgotten corner of some out-of-the-way antique store.”

Toy and robot collectors will also enjoy select pages featuring other CAE retro properties, including the Zeroids.

This NYCC Limited Edition Convention Exclusive will be sold at the Captain Action booth at the New York Comic Con, and retail for $9.99. The New York Comic Con is held annually at the Javits Center in New York City, and is scheduled for October 10-13th, 2013.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
