I fell in love with this delightful fountain in Koblenz, Germany. I wish I knew the story behind it, as it seemed completely out of place just outside of a modernish mall exit.

She’s Alive!! The Clockwork Girl is coming to the big screen

Frogchildren Sudios and Arcana Comics have given life to the award winning (and one of my favorite) graphic novels, The Clockwork Girl. (You can read my review from a previous post here)  Directed by Kevin Hanna and produced by Sean O’Reilly, the novel’s creators, and with art direction by Barnaby Ward it should be fabulous and true to the original. tinker4 clockwork girlBe sure to check out the teaser preview. It is a little short, but sweet!

Here is the short summary …”the story of a nameless robot girl who has recently been given the gift of life from her creator. While exploring the wonders of an ordinary world she meets an amazing monster boy and they share a friendship that must overcome their warring families.”

I will definitely be looking forward to this one!
