Los Angeles (August 25, 2021) – Versatile TV and film actor Ursula Burton (“The Office,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) is the creator of the latest addition to the Binge Books catalog, Super Sleepy Bedtime Stories #1. Each tale is a bedtime story for all ages showcasing the adventures of Super Sleepy, a pint-sized protector of sleepyheads, who won’t rest until the reader does. At 68-pages, Burton’s giggle-filled Binge Book features art from Jeff Shultz (“Peanuts”), and will be available in comic book stores on November 24, 2021 for $4.99. This release also earned Diamond Comics vaunted “spotlight” status.
“Super Sleepy had been tossing and turning in my mind for a long time,” says creator Ursula Burton, “I’m thrilled that families everywhere can finally read about her hilarious adventures alongside her wisecracking sidekick Schleepy the sheep. Jeff’s art has a wonderfully retro style that helps make Super Sleepy feel like an old friend.”
The latest release from Binge Books also introduces readers to a new cast of fun, family-friendly characters including Gargirl the living gargoyle, Adventure Russ – finder of lost toys, Cosmic Ray the Space Kid-et, Lynn Ventor the girl inventor, Senor Uva’s Frutopia and Jillian Heir the Bajillionare.
“Everybody sleeps, so a little girl superhero who travels the world helping anyone who is having trouble sleeping is a wonderfully simple and universal premise which instantly inspires endless story ideas,” says Binge Books’ publisher Darin Henry. “With back-up tales starring Gargirl and her Dreamland friends, Super Sleepy’s Bedtime Stories should be an instant classic to anyone who’s ever been a kid.”
