Captain Mack and the Slithery Serpent by John Lomas-Bullivant


Captain Mack and the Slithery Serpent by John Lomas-Bullivant

Action, drama, silliness, naughtiness and comedy abound in this full-colour comic book for newly-independent readers, based on the popular live-action CITV series. Slithering serpents! A deadly Bone Crusher snake has escaped from its cage and is on the loose in a cargo plane. Thank goodness for Captain Mack! Using his extra-powerful Hypno-Vision, our superhero soon has the snake under control and safely on its way to the zoo. But there's no time to sit back and relax because disaster has struck in Sunshine City...What on earth is Daisy Digger going to do? The special Sunshine City Sunflower has mysteriously disappeared. Who has taken it and why? Never fear, Mack is here! Sky Rockets to the Rescue! The bright, colourful comic-strip format makes this accessible series a terrific choice for newly-independent readers. This title is full of action, humour, adventure, rockets and a reassuring theme of good versus naughty. It is based on the popular CITV series, which has its own website featuring games and downloads for the fans. Captain Mack introduces a wonderfully benign superhero to the very youngest of readers.
