Marlin & Percy is a family-friendly comic book many years in the making. Originally conceived by Caleb Bollenbacher over a decade ago, the story quickly fizzled out due to the writer’s lack of artistic ability. Fast forward a couple years later and the idea has become a reality, brought to life by the dynamic art of Tyler Ellis.
In Marlin & Percy, readers will have the opportunity to follow the hijinks and hilarity of two primates who have decided to be heroes, only to find out that being a hero means a lot more than wearing a cool cape. Over the course of their adventures they’ve discovered that heroism isn’t always glamorous, can be as easy as being a friend, and requires putting others above yourself.
The third in the Marlin & Percy series continues the tale of two apes who just want to be heroes, and is a family-friendly comic book for all ages!
This is the fourth collaboration by Bollenbacher and Ellis, who met while attending Baylor University. The idea of creating comics arose in response to Tyler’s need for a thesis in completion of his Master’s degree, and the two have been working together on-and-off ever since.
