First in a new series, Unnoticed Tales of the Cricket features new tales of the Cricket as told by up-and-coming writers of superhero and science fiction. While these stories take place “between issues” of The Cricket, they aren’t filler or fluff. Each Unnoticed Tale is considered canon and impacts the plot of the main comic.
Unnoticed Tales of the Cricket: Cloudy with a Chance of Murder
Directly after the events in “Diamonds Are for Never,” the Cricket and the Midnight Mask have to find out a mysterious killer… who has already killed some of the other “Supers” (those with powers). Can they catch the killer? Who will fall next? Find out in… “Cloudy… With A Chance of Murder,” the FIRST “Unnoticed Tale of The Cricket!”
Written by Scott B. Smith with illustrations by Marji Fortin and available in the Kindle Store
Unnoticed Tales of the Cricket: The Cricket Holiday Special
This story isn’t heart-warming… it’s heart-burning! In December, 1941 some “Supers” gather at the local diner, nicknamed “Coffee and Capes.” Drawn by Marji Fortin (an animator on the Emmy-award winning Word Girl and formerly an animator on Squidbillies), and written by Cricket creator Jef Holbrook (just “some guy.”), This “Unnoticed Tale of the Cricket” is a gem to read at any time of the year.
