Bodie Troll creator Jay Fosgitt debuts new graphic novel at Dearborn comic store
Local comic creator Jay Fosgitt will make an appearance from noon to 3 p.m. Feb. 15 at the store, which is located at 12310 Michigan Ave. The building, which also houses Stormy Records, is in the budding arts district of east downtown Dearborn.
“Bodie Troll” is a creator-owned, all-ages comic set in the mythic village of Hagadorn and featuring a grumpy little troll named Bodie. Full of colorful characters, fantastic cartooning and light storytelling, Bodie Troll will appeal to fans of Bone by Jeff Smith, Pogo by Walt Kelly and readers that like a little good clean fun with slightly wacky humor.
Green Brain Comics will have copies of the Bodie Troll graphic novel available for sale. Fosgitt will personalize a copy anyone that stops in. A limited supply of single issues of the “Bodie Troll” comic will also be available. Copies of the graphic novel will be limited.
The comic is published by Red 5 Comics. Fosgitt also is the creator of the graphic novel/web comic “Dead Duck,” and writes the “Necronomicomics,” single panel comic for “Rue Morgue Magazine” each month.
Fosgitt has also produced licensed comic book work, contributing illustrations to Boom's “Adventure Time” comic and Ape Entertainment's “Dreamworks Animation Magazine.” He's done design work for IDW Comics, and has been a contributing writer and artist for the “Sesame Street” comic book. Also for Ape Entertainment, Fosgitt was the writer/artist on the all-ages comics “Little Green Men,” “Dino Duck,” and “Old McMonster’s haunted Farm.”
Outside of the comics industry, Fosgitt has contributed artwork for such sketch card series as “Star Wars Galaxy 5” for Topps Entertainment; “Archie,” “Sabrina,” and “Hack/Slash” for 5finity Productions; and “Adventure Time” for Cryptozoic. He has worked on several Marvel-licensed sets for Rittenhouse Archives as well.
