Private Iris: a comic book that teaches money management

Gosh,  I’m really feeling my age.  I’ve made the transition from Mythology Class to Private Iris.  =) 

The comic book series created by Jamie Bautista and Arnold Arre follows the young detective Private Iris as she solves mysteries while imparting useful facts and money savings tips which are relevant to today’s youth.  

The first case – “The Cashbox Caper” introduces the lead characters:  Danton Cord is one of the most popular boys in MacGuffin Elementary. His friend, Iris Able, is a loner whom people think is weird. Because she doesn’t talk to anybody, the kids in school have given her the nickname “Private Iris”. However, Iris is also the smartest and most observant person in town. When the money of a class’ cashbox is stolen, Danton sees this as a chance to make people see how special Iris really is. If he can convince her to solve the crime and get the class its money back, maybe he can get Iris to be a bit more popular. But will Iris be willing to help out people she doesn’t like?

Private Iris #2: The Spirit of the Shoemaker will be launched this month at the following locations:

September 20, 2008 2:00 to 5:00PM: Powerbooks Megamall
September 27, 2008 2:00 to 5:00PM: Powerbooks Mall of Asia
Fun games and activities await kids during the book launch!

Glowing slime. Floating objects. Mysterious messages appearing on walls. Kids are willing to pay any price to get rid of this unwanted ghost. But Private Iris and Danton think that it’s a big hoax to trick the kids out of their money.
