Description

Blue, Barry, and Pancakes are best friends! They love roller skates, inflatable rubber ducks, and going on HIGH VELOCITY adventures!

After a series of wacky mishaps, Blue, Barry, and Pancakes find themselves inside a Roller Duck Ball stadium. Forced to compete in this nonsensical yet highly popular sport, the gang discovers a natural talent for the game. Soon enough, they find themselves hurtling towards athletic stardom! As endorsement deals and branded merchandise offers pile up, will our heroes be able to stay humble and hold onto their friendship? Or will the pressures of fame and success tear them apart?!

Like all friends, Blue, Barry, and Pancakes can make mistakes . . . but at the end of the day, they always have each other’s backs. And tops, and sides, and fronts, too!

About the Author

Dan & Jason go back. Waaaaay back. They have directed award-winning commercials, created hit cartoon shows, and even sold a feature-film concept, but nothing has prepared them for this... the pinnacle of their storied career: publishing the hilarious and heartwarming comic tales of Blue, Barry & Pancakes?! Dan & Jason have packed it with everything they know about drawing, writing, and the enduring power of friendship. Please enjoy their comic book debut! They make everything together. They think it, draw it, write it, mix it, bake it, and serve it together. Teamwork!

Dan Abdo and Jason Patterson have been making stuff together for a very looong time! They created the animated television program Rocket Monkeys, and they’ve directed countless animated commercials for major global brands. Their short films have won numerous awards and their cartoons and comics have been published in The New Yorker and Nickelodeon magazine. Through all these different mediums their humor and storytelling always rings sweet, silly, and slightly twisted. Together at First Second, they've produced several volumes of Blue, Barry & Pancakes, a zany story about three animal friends who go on out-of-this-world adventures!

Jason Patterson and Dan Abdo met in the back of the art room in highschool, started drawing together, and never stopped. They both attended the Rhode Island School of Design and then both moved to New York City to begin their world conquest. These days Jason has jumped across the Hudson to live in New Jersey with his wife and two children. Dan returned to the place where it all started and lives in Vermont with his wife, two children, six chickens, two ducks, and one ancient cat. Even though they’re hundreds of miles apart they still draw together every day. Together at First Second, they've produced several volumes of Blue, Barry & Pancakes, a zany story about three animal friends who go on out-of-this-world adventures!
