Happy Estrada Day!

In addition to the special guest template by Ryan Estrada, there's also a new press release to celebrate the next CCP comic book:

John Baird and Ryan Estrada have teamed up to release Create a Comic Project Presents: Climate Change. The 34-page comic book, which explores the various facets of climate change, is published through

The comic is the first issue in the Create a Comic Project's Presents line, which seeks to use comics to educate kids about various subjects, such as public health, government, and economics. Climate change was chosen as the first topic to coincide with yearlong efforts by the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) to raise public awareness of the issue.

"[The ASPH] is very excited about this project," said Laura Biesiadecki, Senior Program Manager of the ASPH.

John Baird's narrative explores climate change in both its historical and modern day contexts, going through how the Earth's temperatures change, what greenhouse gases are, and why burning oil could be exacerbating the process. It also covers how scientists study climate change and several of the recent developments. As an added bonus, text free versions of every page are included in the comic to allow kids to create their own climate change tale.

"Why did I announce this comic book on Estrada Day?" said writer John Baird. "Because I wanted to be among the first to blatantly commercialize the holiday. Remember, only 365 days until the next Estrada Day!"
