Lexington – In an era where big comic book publishers talk promises of diversity and progression on the page and behind the scenes for people of color with mixed to minimal results, creator Shawn Pryor has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the diverse, all-ages comic book debut of CASH & CARRIE. Pryor, an eight-year veteran of the comic book industry and former President of publisher Action Lab Entertainment is looking to raise $3,600 to print special edition exclusive debut copies of this new independent mystery comic.
Created by Pryor and Co-Creators Giulie Speziani and Penny Candy Studios, CASH & CARRIE is about Dallas Cash and Inez Carrie, two middle-school detectives who are best friends that attempt to solve mysteries for schools all around the world. Inspirations for this all-ages comic book include Disney’s animated series Fillmore, Scooby Doo, and the X-Files. This book was created because the creators involved wanted to see more diversity in all ages comics and feature kids of all kinds. There’s still a lack of color in mainstream comic books, especially in leading roles and there’s an absence of fun adventure/mystery filled books for all-ages audiences.
In their debut comic book, the strange disappearance of a school mascot, Misty the Goat, has left a small town without answers. Luckily junior high school friends, Dallas Cash and Inez Carrie, are on the case! With the help of a few friends and some intriguing clues, they narrow down the list of possible suspects… or did Misty magically vanish into thin air? If there’s a mystery to be solved, look no further than Cash and Carrie!
